Webinar Description:

The purpose of this webinar to provide participants with the knowledge in the preparation and characterization of an Internal Quality Control Material (IQCM) based on ISO Guide 80:2014 "Guidance for the in-house preparation of quality control materials (QCMs)."

Webinar Takeaways:

Upon completion of the webinar, the participants will be able to learn the following:

1. Identification of a suitable candidate material to be used as internal quality control material (IQCM);

2. Assess the suitability of the validated test method to the candidate material;

3. Processing and bottling of the candidate material for homogenization, sub-division and packaging;

4. Conduct of homogeneity assessment to determine if the candidate IQCM developed is adequate and sufficiently homogenous;

5. Characterize the developed IQCM using validated/verified test method;

6. Evaluate stability over a period of time ; and

7. Incorporate the developed IQCM into the laboratory’s internal quality control program.
