Turkey – Setting up an analytical lab

KAIN coordinated the setting up of an analytical laboratory in Turkey for one of her customers. Activities started in February 2009 with the design of a floor plan and putting the necessary infrastructure in place. Key criteria here were compliance with ISO 17025, safety for the analysts, and efficiency of the workflow.

At a later stage UPLC-MS/MS equipment was installed, and analytical methods implemented and validated according to SANCO guidelines. Local analysts were trained in the course of several visits and their performance subsequently monitored over a prolonged period. Within just a few months the Turkish laboratory was able to operate the UPLC-MS/MS independently.
