Quality Control for Microbiological Media and Reagents

February 18, 2014 @ 10:00 am - 3:00 pm EDT

The webinar will discuss best QC practices and procedures for verifying the suitability and performance characteristics of microbiological media and reagents. Why Should You Attend: Many laboratories are unsure about which QC practices are needed to assess media performance, to meet not only their requirements, but also the requirements of ISO/IEC 17025: 2005. During this webinar, we will discuss a practical QC approach for in-house prepared and/or commercially purchased media and reagents specifically applicable to microbiology laboratories. Learning objectives: -Upon completion of this session, attendees will learn: -To appreciate intrinsic and extrinsic factors which can affect the performance of culture media and reagents -To identify Control Points (CP) and Critical Control Points (CCP) in media quality assessment -To develop appropriate Quality Control Practices for CCPs to evaluate the acceptability of media and reagents for laboratory use Areas Covered in the Webinar: -Control Points -Critical Control Points -QC from purchase to disposal -Sterility -Productivity -Selectivity Who Will Benefit: This webinar will provide valuable assistance to: -Microbiological bench analysts -QA managers -Laboratory managers/supervisors and -QC practitioners Instructors Profile: Michael Brodsky , has been an Environmental Microbiologist for more than 41 years.
