Introduction

This Webinar will discuss the distinction between and requirements for method validation and method verification, to comply with ISO/IEC Standard 17025 for laboratory accreditation in food/water microbiology. Quantitative and Qualitative methods have different performance measurement requirements and require different statistical analyses. Although method validation and method verification are related terms, they have very different analytical and statistical requirements particularly for compliance with ISO/IEC 17025. Understanding these differences is essential for developing appropriate strategies for assessing a method’s fitness for purpose.

Learning Objectives

  • Method performance characteristics.
  • Measuring and Monitoring Analytical competency
  • Food Categories and Food Types
  • Analytical requirements for Validation of Quantitative Methods
  • Analytical requirements for Validation of Qualitative Methods
  • Fitness for purpose

Why should you attend?

Without a clear understanding of the different analytical approaches for verification and validation, laboratories often end up doing more unnecessary, costly work, with little benefit. Very often the inappropriate analytical strategy used is unacceptable to meet the requirements for accreditation and the effort needs to be repeated. Learn to do it right the 1st time! This webinar will not only address the semantics, but will also discuss the appropriate analytical and statistical approaches to achieving successful verification and validation studies

Who Will Benefit

  • Microbiological bench analysts in food, water and pharmaceutical laboratories
  • QA managers
  • Laboratory managers/supervisors
  • QC practitioners
