Session Summary

In November 2016, the ISAC Shared Resource Laboratory (SRL) Task Force published a document outlining a set of “best practices” for SRLs, or "core facilities," to use as a general guide for achieving and maintaining standards of excellence in the services they provide. These best practices highlight several important areas that impact the efficiency, quality, and reproducibility of services provided by these facilities. The purpose of this tutorial is to provide guidance and generate discussion and feedback on how to best implement these “best practices” across a wide variety of these facilities.


  1. Introduction of the "best practices" and what is hoped to be achieved through implementation.
  2. Brief presentation and background information on each topic including SOPs, training and education, quality assurance, laboratory safety, data management, staffing, and operations.
  3. Identification of potential roadblocks and hurdles and how to overcome them.
  4. Benefits of implementation and adherence to these best practices.
