Reagent tracking in an ISO 17025 laboratory

#1
What is your opinion as to whether a reagent needs to be tracked (for traceability) if it does not get added to a sample. The reagent is used as an instrument flush in between samples.

Thank you for your input.

Re: Reagent tracking in 17025 lab

For the sake of process control I would track that. However, similarly to pH buffer solution, depending on industry and its relative requirements I would be satisfied with a minimalist approach if only one such reagent is available for use at a time.

Re: Reagent tracking in 17025 lab

Yes, our internal discussions point both directions. We were initially saying because it wasn't added to samples, it didn't need to be tracked. On the other hand, it could be a source of contamination...

thank you for offering your opinion.
