Companies that manufacture chemicals and solvents normally hire quality control (QC) chemists. Quality control differs from quality assurance; while quality assurance focuses on the chemical development and creation processes, quality control chemists assess the final product through chemical analysis to ensure it meets organizational standards.
Quality Control (QC) Chemist Tasks
Maintain the lab and calibrate equipment, including documentation of use and results.
Identify and investigate abnormal test results, conducting root cause analysis.
Extract, derive, and analyze samples using scientific equipment.
Prepare study protocols, collect data, and present recommendations.
