Quality Assurance

National Marine Biological Analytical Quality Control scheme (NMBAQC)

The NMBAQC scheme provides a source of external Quality Assurance (QA) for laboratories engaged in the production of marine biological data. The scheme is made up of six distinct components, each run by separate scheme administrators and contract managers more information>>


QUASIMEME has developed an effective knowledge base for the marine environment and provides support to laboratories to obtain data which are fit for purpose and thus comparable with those of other laboratories in the field and by providing its participants tools for cooperation and exchange of experience more information >>
