The webinar will discuss QC best practices and procedures for verifying the suitability and performance characteristics of microbiological media and reagents.
Why Should You Attend:
Many laboratories are unsure about which QC practices are needed to assess media performance to meet not only their requirements, but also the requirements of ISO/IEC 17025: 2005.
This webinar will discuss a practical QC approach for in-house prepared and/or commercially purchased media and reagents specifically applicable to microbiology laboratories.
In this webinar, attendees will learn:
- To appreciate intrinsic and extrinsic factors which can affect the performance of culture media and reagents
- To identify Control Points (CP) and Critical Control Points (CCP) in media quality assessment
- To develop appropriate quality control practices for CCPs to evaluate the acceptability of media and reagents for laboratory use
Areas Covered in the Webinar:
- Control points
- Critical control points
- QC from purchase to disposal
Who Will Benefit:
- Microbiological bench analysts
- QA managers
- Laboratory managers/supervisors
- QC practitioners
