Abstract
The guideline document was prepared to address the need for a manual of quality assurance practices aimed specifically at biological testing. These guidelines draw from the good practices published for analytical and clinical laboratories, and incorporate observations made in a number of U.S. EPA laboratories, contractor laboratories, and biological research laboratories in general. As quality assurance aspects of biological testing depend on the particular test systems being used, these guidelines cover the general aspects of quality assurance, aquatic bioassay, microbiologic assay, and mammalian bioassay. Hopefully, attention to the principles presented in this document will assist in improving the validity and integrity of the data generated by biological testing.
