Assay and Device Validation and Verification: ISO 15189


This webinar is in partnership with the Institute of Biomedical Science (IBMS). 

Assay and device validation and verification is important for quality control and tested by UKAS assessors under ISO15189 as part of a laboratory assessment. This webinar aims to support staff in clinical laboratories to improve their service and achieve accreditation, providing real-world examples of best practice in assay and device validation across cellular pathology, molecular and serology.  

The webinar will cover: 

  • Requirements of the ISO 15189 standard and UKAS assessor
  • Difference between validation and verification 
  • Validating and verifying assays (including performance characteristics, limit of detection and other parameters)
  • Validating and verifying new devices and current devices following service or recalibration

Webinar Recording
