Method validation plays an integral role in planning for quality results in any testing laboratory. In the absence of industry-standard methods for cannabis testing, robust method validation is critical to ensure the test methods are fit for the intended use. Robust method validation provides confidence that the methods employed by the lab are fit for the intended purpose and produce quality, reliable, and consistent analytical results. This course focuses on method development and the importance of the method validation process, including determining a method’s fitness for use, common quality control activities, and the importance of the validation package, as well as validation characteristics that are part of the validation process. The requirements for method validation from ISO/IEC 17025:2017 will also be reviewed. Exercises and quizzes throughout the course will test comprehension of the topics covered in each section.
