More information about this workshop

Workshop Overview

Laboratories implement ISO 17025 to ensure confidence in their delivered results. One of its requirements involves the selection, verification, and validation of methods, which can be challenging without clear guidance. This course offers step-by-step instructions on method validation criteria and measurement uncertainty, supported by practical examples.

The workshop covers method validation and measurement uncertainty determination as mandated by ISO 17025, offering practical insights into microbiological and analytical methods. It includes relevant statistical tables and a calculator to facilitate learning and application.

Learning is made fun & practical

Progress Excellence takes a unique approach to training in food safety, quality, health and safety, environmental and laboratory:

  • Sector specific examples are used to ensure relevance and understanding of the topic.
  • All our training modules are highly interactive with practical activities that entrench theoretical learning.
  • We provide templates and helpful implementation plans.

Our aim is to equip delegates in such a way that they can practically implement and improve their systems.

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, such as calibration accuracy, working range, precision, limit of detection (LOD), limit of quantification (LOQ), sensitivity, specificity, accuracy, trueness and bias and recovery data, workability (repeatability & robustness), stability and total uncertainty of methods.

The course will equip delegates with the following:

  • Understanding method validation requirements of ISO 17025.
  • 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 formalise a validation report.

The course is best suited to the following audiences:

  • Laboratory Manager
  • Technical Manager
  • Quality Manager
  • Laboratory staff tasked with method validation.
