» Method Validation
Method Validation This course is run by LGC.
3 day course
Method validation is the process that provides evidence that a given analytical method, when correctly applied, produces results that are fit for purpose. No matter how well a method performs elsewhere, analysts need to confirm that the method is valid when applied in their laboratory. There is now much greater emphasis on method validation in the ISO/IEC 17025:2005 accreditation standard. During the course there is ample opportunity to practice the principles learned through laptop-based workshops using Excel.
What are the benefits?
This course will help delegates understand method validation and its requirements; select and apply the statistics required during method validation; select and use the appropriate types of method validation studies and appreciate and understand the links with measurement uncertainty.
