Statistical Method Validation for Test Laboratories

(3rd  – 5th March 2014)


“Statistical method validation assists professionals to identify the right validation parameters and acceptance criteria for an efficient validation process to enable compliance to business, regulatory

and accreditation requirements”

Validation is widely used in laboratory situations to confirm that a method or piece of equipment is functioning correctly and/or providing the necessary improvements.

Statistical methods give the evidence required by regulators to support any changes. The use of hypothesis testing to decide whether to accept or reject a change and applying confidence intervals are particularly valuable.

No matter how well a method performs elsewhere, analysts need to confirm that the method is valid when applied in their laboratory. There is now much greater emphasis on method validation in the ISO 17025 accreditation standard.


Benefits of attending this three-day training workshop include:


  • Addressing the limits of detection and quantification
  • Gaining hands-on tool kits through practical exercises with your trainer
  • Performing regression analysis accurately
  • Employing method validation data in the evaluation of measurement uncertainty
  • Developing effective method validation processes compliant to ISO 17025
  • Overcoming the challenges of method validation
  • Incorporating proficiency testing data in the evaluation of method performance
  • Examining matrix effects in chemical analysis
