The objectives of this Education Course are
to offer practical solutions for determining the validation characteristics
to learn how to deal with measurement uncertainty and to understand its impact on analytical methods validation
to discuss the scope of validation necessary to obtain approval by the Registration Authorities (EMA, FDA, MHRA, etc.)
to become familiar with the statistical parameters to be applied
to understand the qualification of laboratory equipment as a precondition of reliable analytical testing
to outline the documentation (SOPs, Validation Protocols and Reports, etc.) which you should have in your lab.
In order to improve the understanding and practical application of the contents of the lectures, workshops will be part of the training course.


Guideline Q2(R1) lists all characteristics to be considered during validation and describes the method of determining the various validation characteristics. Reliable analytical results do not only require validated test procedures but also the use of analytical equipment qualified for its intended purpose. In order to obtain the FDA investigator‘s approval, the qualification of all critical laboratory equipment should be performed in standard IQ/OQ/PQ format. Furthermore, measurement uncertainty is of key importance in analytical instruments qualification as well as in analytical methods validation and transfer. Therefore it is absolutely essential that measurement uncertainty is well understood by everybody who is responsible for generating and evaluating analytical results in GMP controlled laboratories.


This interactive Education Course will be of particular interest to Laboratory Managers, Supervisors and Analysts in pharmaceutical quality control departments who have responsibility for the validation of analytical test procedures. Furthermore, this Course is designed for personnel from Quality Assurance, Regulatory Affairs and Contract Laboratories.
