Webinar Summary

The foundation of good data starts with the instrument. While substantial effort is often invested in development and validation of analytical methods or analysis, instrument validation is often neglected.  It is essential to apply the same analytical and scientific rigor to the platform generating the data.  From initial optimization and characterization of performance to establishing QC systems to ensure longitudinal data comparability, instrument validation strategies are critical components of generating robust and reliable data.  This is true for all laboratory environments but particularly relevant for regulated labs providing decision-enabling biomarkers. Generating quality data plays a critical role in bringing new therapeutic options to the medical community; drugs which eventually manifest as successful new treatments for those individuals afflicted with disease.

Learning Objectives

In this webinar, you will learn the basic principles of instrument validation. Validation of flow cytometers used in regulated environments provides assurance that the output generated on these instruments is reproducible and precise.  The most relevant elements of instrument validation include testing to verify that an instrument: i) is installed properly and ii) performs as intended.  This includes establishing controlled procedures for installation, maintenance, calibration, cross-instrument standardization, and longitudinal performance monitoring.  This course will review basic concepts of instrument validation and provide examples of each step in the process that can be applied in your lab.


Our vision is to advance the impact of cytometry in meeting current and emerging challenges in the life, biomedical, and physical sciences.
