That is a great addition for everyone on your context. You probably then notice I wasn't wrong in my advice.
You are still going to want to reference FDA guidelines for lab operations and for supporting facility and practice requirements. The type of "testing" or "analysis" you are looking to perform (human efficacy, manufacturing, etc.) will determine how a lab will need to be set up and operated as well as what types of quality assurance and regulation will be required. GCP, GMP and GLP may all apply. (GLP at a minimum.) That includes equipment handling as well as procurement of everything from specimens to spectrometers to glassware. I doubt that you have gotten far in the legal stages if you haven't established these things yet. A good bet would be to visit a molecular biology department and botany department. Stanford and Berkeley are great places for you to learn from right there in your area.
