Measurement uncertainty for clinical testing laboratories
- 1 day
Clinical testing laboratories maintaining or seeking accreditation to ISO 15189 are required to evaluate the uncertainty associated with their measurement results. An estimation of the uncertainty provides a quantitative indication of the quality of the result. However, this evaluation can be a complex and challenging process, especially where measurement procedures consist of many steps and require a range of equipment and reagents.
To help clinical laboratory analysts and quality managers with this evaluation we will be providing a one-day practical workshop covering the basic principles of measurement uncertainty. The workshop will also include practice sessions on how to evaluate the measurement uncertainty using the top-down approach. This top-down approach makes use of information on the performance of whole measurement procedures, such as data obtained from validation studies.
- Requirements for laboratories regarding measurement uncertainty
- Key rules for uncertainty evaluation
- Evaluating uncertainty using validation data
- Data from validation studies: precision and bias
- Completing uncertainty budgets
The workshop will include practical sessions based on a relevant case study. This will give delegates an opportunity to practice estimating the uncertainty of a measurement result.
