Many laboratories are unsure about which QC practices are needed and what criteria to use to assess the acceptability of the performance of analytical materials, to meet not only their requirements, but also to meet the requirements of ISO/IEC 17025. During this webinar, we will discuss a practical QC approach for in-house prepared and/or commercially purchased media, test kits and reagents specifically applicable to microbiology laboratories.
