Product Description

Learn to Gauge Whether Lab-Based Analytic Materials Are Up To Snuff

As a lab manager or bench analyst, you know that poor quality control (QC) leads to compromised performance of culture media, test kits, reagents, and other analytics materials. What you need is a sound—and practical—solution for assessing the acceptability of analytical materials’ performance, not just to meet lab requirements, but also to comply with ISO/IEC 17025.

Gain that practical QC solution in this webinar presented by pharma industry expert Michael Brodsky. He will show you how to take a performance-focused approach to employing in-house-prepared or commercially-purchased analytical materials in microbiology lab settings.  He will also explain both the intrinsic and extrinsic factors that can affect materials’ performance and show you how to identify control points (CP) and critical control points (CCP) in a media quality assessment.

After attending, you’ll be able to develop QC practices that effectively evaluate analytical materials’ performance. You’ll understand performance criteria and why they are important, the difference between quality control and quality assurance (QA), and the difference between a lot and a batch. Don’t get hung up applying ineffective QC standards—learn today how to move forward with confidence!

Session Highlights

Join this webinar to answer these critical questions:

  • What is QC—and how does it differ from QA?
  • What are QC best practices under ISO/IEC 17025?
  • What are the performance criteria applicable to lab-based analytical materials?
  • How do you effectively measure and monitor productivity?
  • Do test kits require the same degree of QC rigor as in-house prepared materials?
  • What critical factors affect the performance of lab-based analytic materials?
  • How do you identify CP and CCP in a media quality assessment?
