Why Should You Attend:
Most important for getting correct analytical results is the use of accurate standards or (certified) reference materials. No matter how skilled the analysts are or how sophisticated and automated the equipment, if the calibration of the system is incorrect, the analytical result will always be wrong. Because of this FDA inspectors expect companies to have validated processes for the selection, purchasing, testing, storage and use of (certified) reference material.

Attend this Webinar to understand the requirements of ISO 17025 and ISO 34. Get an insight in to the hierarchy of reference materials and learn how to prepare and test it. Our expert Dr. Ludwig Huber will also discuss traceability of primary/secondary standards and reference materials and how to prepare the working standards from these standards. How do you save costs by optimizing the uses of the reference materials?
