Method validation & measurement uncertainty for Microbiology and Analytical testing laboratories
PLEASE NOTE THAT THIS COURSE IS AN EXCLUSIVELY ON-SITE WORKSHOP (For 6 delegates or more)
ISO 17025 is implemented by laboratories to ensure confidence in the results they deliver. One of the requirements in this Standard is selection, verification and validation of methods. This can be a daunting task and there is often little guidance as to the way in which method validation should be performed.
The Progress Excellence Approach
- Dissecting the method validation requirements of ISO 17025.
- Explanation of the contents and lay-out of a validation report.
- Experimental design for validation criteria.
- Practical, worked examples of each of the validation criteria, e.g. calibration accuracy, working range, precision, LOD, LOQ, sensitivity, specificity, accuracy, trueness and bias and recovery data, workability (repeatability & robustness), stability and total uncertainty of methods.
Who should attend?
- Quality Managers
- Technical Managers
- Laboratory Managers
- Laboratory staff tasked with method validation
Delegates must have a basic understanding of laboratory work and statistical terms.
- An assignment is due after completion of this course.
- A pass mark of 70% is required for the assignment and full attendance of the course for a certificate to be issued.
Duration of the course
The course material will equip delegates with the following:
- Understanding method validation requirements.
- Practical performance and confirmation of each of the validation criteria.
- Ability to calculate uncertainty of measurement.
- Ability to develop an experimental design for validation criteria.
- Ability to interpret validation data and formalize a validation report.
Each delegate receives
- A full colour delegate manual
