On-line Audio Seminar 218

Traceability in Chemical Analysis

With strategies and tools for ISO 17025 and FDA compliance

Recorded, Available on Demand

Order Button

Traceability of reference standards used for qualification and calibration is a requirement of ISO 17025 and regulations such as GLP and CGMP. Frequently traceability is achieved through an unbroken chain of comparisons to primary standards, to national or international standards and ultimately to Système International d’Unités (SI units). Chemical measurements are typically traceable to either a reference material or to a reference method. However frequently this is difficult to achieve because primary reference standards may not include adequate sample matrix, they are expensive and frequently are not available at all. This opens up many questions

Frequent questions related are traceability in chemical analysis are

  • What are ISO 17025 and regulatory requirements?
  • When and where is traceability required?
  • Ho to demonstrate traceability if no primary standards are available?
  • How to establish traceability through participation in inter-laboratory experiments?
  • How to define 'Acceptable' Uncertainty?
  • How to choose reference standards
  • How to establish traceability through reference methods?
  • How important is measurement uncertainty in traceability assessment?

How does the audio seminar help:

Questions will be answered by Dr. Ludwig Huber in a new interactive audio seminar. During the seminar strategies and procedures will be presented on how to develop, document, maintain and update User Requirements. An extensive list of reference material like SOPs, templates and examples will help immediate and cost effective implementation.

During the interactive presentation you learn about:

  • Requirements and expectations from ISO 17025 and FDA
  • Official guidelines
  • The concept of traceability
  • Value of traceability for laboratories and customers
  • Principles of traceability in chemical analysis
  • Practical approaches for analytical traceability
  • Establishing traceability through interlaboratory experiments
  • Establishing traceability through comparison with reference methods
  • Choosing the ideal reference standards
  • Requirements for suppliers of (certified) reference material
  • Traceability chain of (certified reference material)
  • Key steps in attainment of traceability
  • Procedure and protocols for traceability
  • The importance of uncertainty assessment for traceability
  • Ensuring traceability chain when preparing in-house standards
  • Documentation of traceability for ISO 17025 and GxP
