Technical writer-use manufacture documentation, reference manuals, and facts I know by heart for references. Authored many Standard Operated Procedures and Manuals. It’s best to be in the Lab I am writing the procedure for as I am able to give to another Technologist to perform with only the SOP, this works great for getting glitches out before they have a chance to be a problem.
