Are there any laboratory standards (CLIA,CAP, other etc.) that I can
reference concerning inspecting or self-inspecting a certain number of
reagents for labeling/expiration dates that will be a sufficient
representation of the whole (% or number). 


Also standards for how many monthly QC temp/function checks are acceptable
for compliance (i.e. 100% or what acceptable margin of error).


Six Sigma which is a quality concept allows for 3.4 defects per million
opportunities.  Your thoughts or references?
