Pressestimmen"With this primer, John Kenkel seeks to fill this gap by providing a brief but thorough introduction to the principles of quality assurance and quality controlbook includes a wealth of information, with chapters covering statistics, quality assurance, sampling, good laboratory practices, and quality audits. The text is written in a lively styleand uses practical examples to which the reader can easily relateNewly employed analytical chemists will find this primer to be of immense benefit as they adjust to an industrial laboratory's increased emphasis on quality and to the interactions between their laboratory and federal regulations." David Harvey, in Journal of Chemical Education, Vol. 77, No. 12 ..."extremely well written, and the author knows his subject well. He is knowledgeable about all the national and international organizations that play a part in quality control in analytical chemistry. His facts are accurate and current. Furthermore, his style is unusually readable, even when he describes rather dry subjects like government regulations. I learned a great deal from my quick reading."-David Lide, bestselling author of the CRC Handbook of Chemistry and Physics and other titles ..."Good presentation of TQM, quality standards, and GLP"-Kirk Hunter, Texas State Technical College "Yesterday, I received [Kenkel's] 'Primer on Quality in the Analytical Laboratory'...It was so interesting I took it home and read the whole thing...I'm impressed...I'm not often this excited about a document...this is a useful one..."-Bob Hofstader, American Chemical Society ..."extremely clearly written, one of the best introductions to statistical analysis applied to experimental data that I've seen. Ienjoyed reading it and I commend the author on the clarity of his writing...The uniqueness if this [book] is [how the author ties] it to the regulatory requirements of the government and [couples] it with the numerous associations and organizations he mentions in the text."-A. Keith Furr, bestselling author of the CRC Handbook of Laboratory Safety, now in its fifth edition
