Course validation of chemical methods for residue analysis, 2018


Course validation of chemical methods for residue analysis

Analytical laboratories that perform chemical analysis on veterinary drugs, mycotoxins and pesticides need to demonstrate that their methods are fit for purpose. Multiple validation approaches exist (CD 2002/657/ EC, SANTE 11945/2015, CODEX CAC/GL 71-2009) and it is often unclear how to implement these and how to come to a practical set-up of experiments. In this interactive 2-day course, you will learn the theoretical background on the validation of quantitative confirmatory methods and how to select and execute a cost-effective validation approach based on a practical validation plan. The training will discuss all three approaches, and then zoom in on CD 2002/657/EC.
