Ensuring Quality and Confidence in Pathogen Testing with Lean Six Sigma
Maureen Harte, Lean Six Sigma Black Belt
Lean Six Sigma has been used for decades to ensure quality in manufacturing. In recent years all industries have come to realize that these tools can be highly beneficial. Pathogen testing laboratories are performing highly complex processes. Consumer health and brand confidence are dependent on these processes delivering the highest possible quality. Company profitability requires this quality be delivered in a highly efficient manner to continue to provide affordable products. Lean Six Sigma drives quality and efficiency into the pathogen testing process by first identifying waste and opportunities for error in the pathogen testing process, and then developing processes to minimize waste and eliminate errors. A pathogen testing lab embracing Lean Six Sigma is a valuable asset to the organization.
