    Biography
      As the Laboratory Director for One Bond Laboratories I am responsible for all analytical testing procedures performed by the laboratory. All technical work is done under my direction, and I am solely responsible for the final review and approval of all data prior to client release. I am responsible for all research conducted by the laboratory, whether that research involved method development or is project focused. I am also responsible for ensuring all laboratory personnel are properly trained and that training plans are developed and executed to match the work each employee performs in the laboratory. Finally, I am responsible for the overall laboratory space, including, but not limited to, quality of result, timeliness (turn-around-time), appearance, analytical readiness, laboratory accreditation, and laboratory safety. As a Toxicologist for SEA, Ltd., I am I am responsible for cases requiring the determination of the presence or absence of harmful or intoxicating chemicals, testing and analyzing data for harmful contaminants in our food or environment, and evaluating contributing factors in the cause and manner of death or illness. I evaluate exposures to and human health effects of microbial organisms, alcohol, drugs, metals, chemicals, pesticides, gases, and other occupational and environmental potential contaminants. Also, I evaluate, drug related cases including, but not limited to, intoxication, drug-related problems, hazardous drug combinations or overdoses, indications and contraindications, and drug labeling and warnings. Additionally, with experience in the laboratory and as a toxicologist, I assess laboratory procedures and testing methods to determine the integrity of relevant data and data collection methods for drug, pesticides, and other toxicological analysis. Previous experience: Manager of Chemical and Pesticide Laboratories: The State of Ohio, Department of Agriculture; Toxicologist: Battelle Memorial Institute

    Abstract

    Setting up an analytical laboratory requires a clear objective and analytical resources, both instrumentation and technical. The four main areas of focus exist during this process:

    1) Instrumentation and Method Development

    2) Sample Flow, Tracking, and Traceability

    3) Data Analysis, Data Management, and Reporting

    4) Quality Assurance and Proficiency

    Several tools and technology can be leveraged to assist in establishing an efficient laboratory, including Laboratory Information Management System (LIMS), and a Document Management Program. These tools will aid in not only sample traceability and workflow needs, but also accreditation requirements.

    Learning Objectives:

    1. Understanding the basic elements needed to setup an analytical laboratory

    2. Knowing hot topics and potential pitfalls to avoid during this process
