Seed Testing Method Validation, Theory & Practice
This one-day workshop will give an overview of the International Seed Testing Association’s method validation methods and process, including inter-laboratory study. These methods are aligned with ISO standard guidance including ISO 5725 and ISO 17025.
- We will cover study designs for method validation as well reviewing key method validation criteria including accuracy and precision (repeatability and reproducibility) and how they are calculated and evaluated.
- We will review some ISTA tools that have been very helpful in the method validation process including a box plot tool to graphically represent method validation data and an analysis package to get estimates of accuracy and precision with reference back to a gold standard method.
- Participants will get some hands-on work with a couple of these tools and a chance to break out into working groups to design a mock method validation study and get feedback from the instructors, and the group on their study design. There will be also case studies on in-house method validation from seed testing laboratories.
- There will be a discussion on perspectives of regulatory and rule proposal with method validation and verification
Come and join us for some good learnings, tool use, discussions, and fun!
