Is it Method Verification or Validation, or Just Semantics?

Course Description:

The Webinar will discuss the distinction between and requirements for method validation and method verification, to comply with ISO/IEC Standard 17025:2005 for laboratory accreditation in food/water microbiology. Quantitative and Qualitative methods have different performance measurement requirements and require different statistical analyses.

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! 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. Understanding these differences is essential for developing appropriate strategies for assessing a method’s fitness for purpose. 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.
