This course has been approved by the Royal Society of Chemistry for purposes of Continuing Professional Development (CPD).

What will you learn on this course?

This course engenders a holistic approach to method validation, applicable to all techniques, from start (initial planning) to finish (on-going tracking of performance statistics), including explanations of each important facet, initial data reduction, design of control charts plus on-going monitoring and appraisal.

You will have a chance to apply the knowledge learned through practical exercises. The first practical covers method development and will strengthen the thought processes required to build a fundamental robust method. You will consider the five main areas of a method: Sampling and Sample Introduction which has eleven variables to consider, the GC Inlet which has seven variables, the GC Oven which has eight variables, the GC Detector which has nine variables and Data Analysis which has four variables.

The second practical covers using previously acquired data to design a brand-new Shewhart control chart. You will calculate the Mean, SD, % RSD, % Bias and % Expanded Uncertainty and use conditional formatting to ensure 2s & 3s breaches and trends are automatically highlighted.

Learning outcomes

  • You will gain knowledge in method validation including planning, experimentation, optimisation and control.
  • You will learn about method performance and become conversant with many aids to future-proof your methods.
  • You will gain practical experience in the design of bullet-proof Analytical Quality Control (AQC) charts and become familiar with the statistics, formulae and conditional formatting therein.

Who is this course for?

This course is aimed at delegates with good knowledge of a base technique e.g. GC (or GC-MS) or LC (or LC-MS) and would like to learn more about method validation. Delegates requiring refresher training will also benefit. Whether you are a PhD student developing your research method or you work in a contract laboratory, you will benefit from attending this course!
