About the course

Good laboratory practice means different things to different people. This course covers the advance topics in Good Laboratory Practice (GLP). All practices that ensure that laboratory testing is planned, performed, monitored, recorded and reported in an organized and controlled manner, will be discussed in general and the Uncertainty Measurement in particular.

The course provides training of the Good Laboratory (GLP) for personnel of laboratories who wish to produce test results that are fit for the purpose and which would stand up to the scrutiny. The primary objective of the GLP is to ensure the generation of high quality data. Statistical tools play an important role in GLP to calculate the Uncertainty Measurement. This course will focus on the latest techniques and standards developed to measure the uncertainty of the data.

This course will use the Statistical Process Control (SPC) module as a tool to validate the uncertainty measurement. It covers control charts and their applicability to uncertainty before covering a step-by-step process of calculating uncertainty for typical application. Methods of reporting uncertainty, the uncertainty budget and applicable standards and guidelines for expressing measurement uncertainty are covered in some detail. Successful completion of this course will enable participants to understand, evaluate and express measurement uncertainty.
