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.
Wageningen Academy organizes this course in cooperation with RIKILT, in order to offer you the latest insights and best practices in the validation of chemical methods for residue analysis.
Professionals with a technical background in industry, in governmental, commercial or academic laboratories in the area of food and feed safety residue analysis.
After successfully attending the course, you will:
• understand the phases to go through for a fit for purpose validation;
• be able to determine the relevant validation parameters;
• have a good understanding of the meaning of trueness, precision, CCα and CCß;
• be able to determine measurement uncertainty;
• be able to construct a validation protocol and execute it;
• have hands-on experience with evaluation of the analytical data;
• be able to prepare a validation report.
