relana® at work

Activities of the relana® quality circle are web-meetings, yearly workshops, projects dedicated to the improvement of analytical methods, method ring tests related to new analytes or “undercover” competence checks.

All these activities are followed by corresponding documentations (reports / result records).

Next to the relana®-Position Papers, which consider in particular analytical challenges and current developments, the reports and result records of the activities of the relana® quality circle are published here (short version).

The documents are published according to their release date and thus provide updates of „relana® at work“.
