The 2012 update of the biologic variation database was its most popular yet. It gathered far more downloads and sparked more discussion than previous editions. We put some of those user questions to the group of scientists who compiled the database. Dr. Maria-Carmen Perich Alsina, PhD, President of the Analytical Quality Commission of the Spanish Society of Clinical Chemistry, and her colleagues provided some answers.
In addition to letting us post another one of her databases, Dr. Carmen Ricos agreed to answer a few questions about the work, the results, and the meaning of all this biologic variation.
The recently-retired head of the Labs Are Vital™ initiative talks about developing, launching, and growing the popular laboratory community program.
An interview with a Six Sigma Black Belt from Quest Diagnostics.
We are lucky to have an interview with both a Black Belt in training and a Master Black Belt. This not only gives us a chance to discuss the process of becoming a black belt, it also gives us the opportunity to view a Six Sigma project as it is being implemented.
