About this Textbook

This new edition of a successful textbook has been completely revised and enlarged. In particular the chapters on measurement uncertainty, calibration and validation are practically all new. The authors provide an in-depth but easy to understand coverage of quality assurance for chemical measurements. This includes both internal as well as external quality assurance, necessary statistics as well as total quality management. All this is presented with more than 800 commented slides, which are also provided as downloadable Extra Material. The book will serve as an advanced textbook for analytical chemistry students and professionals in industry and service labs and as a reference text and source of course materials for lecturers.

About the authors

Professor Bernd W. Wenclawiak is teaching Analytical Chemistry at the University of Siegen, Dr.-Ing. Michael Koch is at the Institute for Sanitary Engineering, University of Stuttgart, and Evsevios Hadjicostas is working at Quintessence Enterprises Ltd., Nicosia.

Reviews

From the reviews of the second edition:

“That a book on teaching quality assurance in chemistry has gone into a second edition is testament to its use and popularity. … The PowerPoint slides are particularly useful, as this text is meant for those teaching a course on quality assurance in analytical chemistry … . Overall I would recommend this book and accompanying material for any teacher of quality assurance. … overall as a resource this is worth the purchase.” (D. Brynn Hibbert, Accreditation and Quality Assurance, Vol. 16, 2011)

“The new edition … provides an introduction to the concepts and approaches of analytical QA. … It is written to train QA analysts and to teach beginners working for industrial/governmental services, but also in research laboratories. … will be a great help for planning seminars to teach graduate students and practitioners in analytical chemistry with only basic knowledge of QA. … I recommend this revised edition as a very valuable and affordable book, which should not be missing from any analytical laboratory using QA principles.” (Jürgen W. Einax, Analytical and Bioanalytical Chemistry, Vol. 401, 2011)
