  • The webinar will discuss best QC 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.
    During this webinar, we will discuss a practical QC approach for in-house prepared and/or commercially purchased media and reagents specifically applicable to microbiology laboratories.

    Learning objectives:
    -Upon completion of this session, 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:
    This webinar will provide valuable assistance to:
    -Microbiological bench analysts
    -QA managers
    -Laboratory managers/supervisors and
    -QC practitioners
