i wanted to know is there any specific number of times a food microbiological lab temperature is to be monitored during an 8 hour shift? the lab is ISO 17025 accredited. it is a small lab with mostly automated work.

Hi mer1in,

 

I have never encountered such a specific monitoring requirement although IMEX lab. temperature  can be a factor where measurements like APC require a "low" incubation temperature.

 

Is there a related clause in the iso17025 Standard ?


Kind Regards,
