Laboratory is one of the strategic supporting elements for academic activities in a university. It is an essential means for students and teaching staffs in the learning activities, research, and community services. In order that the support of laboratory to the activities of Tridarma implementation runs effectively, then the university laboratories should be managed professionally by adopting a quality system of modern laboratory management. In this way, the entire laboratory resources (such as laboratory assistants/technicians, equipments, materials, methods) can be managed optimally so as to produce valid and reliable data. To achieve this ideal, a laboratory needs to employ the laboratory quality management system standard that has been widely used around the world, namely ISO/IEC 17025-2008 as the initial stage of its management.
