About FDA

Number of samples sent to laboratories per month

Baseline data for SFR Project was compiled in 4 month baseline from Feb-May 2011; numbers for trial period are reflected in May column.

Dictionary: Sample Feedback Reports are submitted when an ORA laboratory finds that a sample is unsuitable for analysis. Through Sample Feedback Reports we are able to track the amount of samples sent back to investigation branches, the reason the sample is unusable, and the amount of man hours lost by the laboratory.
