Read Frequently Asked Questions

This training program will discuss the concept and application of uncertainty of measurement (MU) as required by ISO/IEC Standard 17025:2005 for laboratory accreditation, from a practical microbiological perspective, using unambiguous language and useful examples.

Why Should You Attend:

Laboratories are often confused about the uncertainty of measurement (MU). Further ambiguity on the subject arises as to:

  • What is needed to meet the ISO/IEC Standard 17025:2005 requirements?
  • What data should be collected?
  • How to analyze the data?

This course will address these questions and discuss a practical step by step approach specifically applicable to microbiology.

Learning Objectives:

Upon completion of this session, attendees will learn:

  • the significance of uncertainty of measurement (MU)
  • what data must be collected to calculate MU
  • how to calculate MU
  • how to use MU estimations as part of the laboratory’s quality management system

Areas Covered in the Webinar:

  • Statistical approaches to measuring precision
  • Using precision of a method for calculating MU
  • MU and MPN methods
  • How to make practical use of MU data
  • Applying MU concepts to qualitative methods

Who Will Benefit:

This webinar will provide valuable assistance to:

  • Microbiological bench analysts
  • QA managers
  • Laboratory managers/supervisors
  • QC practitioners
  • Food companies who rely on microbiological criteria for estimating risk
