Although method validation and method verification are related terms, they have very different analytical and statistical requirements particularly for compliance with ISO/IEC 17025:2005. Unfortunately, the terms are often incorrectly used interchangeably, resulting in confusion and the application of inappropriate or inadequate analytical evaluations.
The Webinar will discuss the practical distinction between and method validation and method verification and the requirements of each analytical approach to comply with ISO/IEC Standard 17025:2005 for a microbiology laboratory accreditation.
Areas Covered in the Session:
The difference between method validation and verification
The performance characteristics for method validation
Performance requirements for method verification
How to implement a verification protocol that defines a method’s fitness-for purpose
Who Will Benefit:
Quality Assurance Managers
