“Method validation is the process of defining an analytical requirement, and confirming that the method under consideration has performance capabilities consistent with what the application requires. Implicit in this is that it will be necessary to evaluate the method’s performance capabilities.”

This course introduces all the critical analytical parameters covered during a method validation study, highlighting all applicable regulatory guidance and detailing how the protocol should be carried out and reported. All required statistics are also introduced and explained.

Who is this course for

This course is for LC or GC method developers who need to provide evidence of the reliability of analytical methods or to ensure that “off-the-shelf” validated methods are being used correctly.

Previous knowledge

Good knowledge of chromatography and statistical analysis is advantageous.
