Validation and Verification of Microbiological Methods in the Food Laboratory: Tales from the Trenches

Qiagen

Seminar Dates: Thursday, August 28 at 2-3pm Eastern

Presenter(s): Erin Crowley, Microbiology Research and Development Supervisor at Q Laboratories, Inc.

Food labs are often faced with a unique set of challenges when choosing and validating methods for use in their laboratory. With multiple clients, regulatory agencies and sample types to account for, this can be a daunting process. In order to accommodate all of these factors, the use of multiple rapid methods is often required to meet the needs of each client and sample type. Once the decision has been made to utilize multiple methods, the next critical step is validation. Many laboratories have accepted performance claims from internationally accepted certifying bodies such as AOAC, AFNOR or MicroVal or current literature. It should, however, never be assumed that a method will perform as claimed in every laboratory and for every sample matrix for which it will be used. Additionally, it is vitally important to establish that the methods that are used in the laboratory are performed properly and with a high degree of confidence.

This webinar will focus on the following:

  • Factors Influencing Fit-for-Purpose of methods
  • Considerations for meeting client needs
  • Impact of validated methods on ISO/IEC 17025 requirements
  • Real life examples of how method validations can be conducted in the independent laboratory will be presented

One-for-all Solution for Food Pathogen Detection

Qiagen

Presenter(s): Dr. Marcia Armstrong, Global Scientific Affairs Manager, Food Safety, Qiagen

Reliable results in food safety testing depend equally on highly efficient sample preparation and sensitive and accurate analysis of sample DNA. Automated solutions provide high process safety and standardization, as well as minimized hands-on time and faster time-to-result. This webinar focuses on an innovative one-for-all DNA sample preparation and detection solution from food pathogen cultures. Data from the Salmonella spp. and Listeria spp. AOAC-RI PTM studies will be discussed.

Learn more about:

  • Overcoming challenges of sample preparation for food pathogen detection
  • Achieving optimal bacterial detection in complex food matrices and environmental samples using a single comprehensive, standardized workflow from sample to assay
  • Use of AOAC-RI PTM-validated purification and detection workflows
