Method validation and method verification are related terms. Unfortunately, the terms are often incorrectly used interchangeably. They have immensely different analytical and statistical requirements; particularly for compliance with ISO/IEC 17025:2005. This results in confusion and the application of inappropriate or inadequate analytical evaluations. Microbiology laboratory accreditation will need you to understand the differences between and the requirements for method validation and method verification, to comply with ISO/IEC Standard 17025:2005. This webinar will help you do just that.
