broadly available and to reduce public-sector spending. Legislatures may view public health labora- tories as a commodity of increased or diminished value in an era of health reform and budgetary shortfalls. These issues are further complicated because there is no single model of a typical public health laboratory. All state health departments have laboratories, and a survey conducted in 1992 and 1993 indicated that approximately 1,700 (60%) of 2,888 local health departments perform some form of laboratory testing. However, the sizes of laboratories and the scopes of their activities vary enormously.( Modernization of Public Health Laboratories in a Privatization Atmosphere, Joseph 1,* and William J. Hausler, Jr. ) Project Goal: Develop tools, identify gaps and provide technical assistance/training, planning for a modernized laboratory service Methodology : A research method is a systematic plan for conducting research Sampling : Purposive sampling Research Design : Experimental design An experiment is a research method for investigating cause and effect under highly controlled conditions. Hypothesis : A hypothesis is a statement of how two or more variables are related H1 : Customer satisfaction will be increased with modernized laboratory facilities As per the felt need, the researcher along with a committee decided to implement a fully equipped modern lab within 2 months. Lot of inputs received from Vendors/Distributors/ Manufactures in discussions and everything has been documented properly for easy decision making. As per the plan 3 machines will be installed before 30 th August 2015. All decisions were based on the quality of product, service support, precisions, parameters in all aspects etc. A committee was formulated to take a wise/fruitful decision for the equipment to be EPGP-10-081 ABY ITTYAVIRA

    As a current student on this bumpy collegiate pathway, I stumbled upon Course Hero, where I can find study resources for nearly all my courses, get online help from tutors 24/7, and even share my old projects, papers, and lecture notes with other students.

    I cannot even describe how much Course Hero helped me this summer. It’s truly become something I can always rely on and help me. In the end, I was not only able to survive summer classes, but I was able to thrive thanks to Course Hero.

    The ability to access any university’s resources through Course Hero proved invaluable in my case. I was behind on Tulane coursework and actually used UCLA’s materials to help me move forward and get everything together on time.
