General information - Validation of Non-targeted methods

EURACHEM Logo 30th 235x80The main topic of the workshop is validation of analytical methods – both non-targeted, where the question is more general such as determination of any organic contaminant in matrix y and targeted, where the issue is clearly defined as such as determination of x in matrix y. In addition to the presentations, participants will be given ample opportunity to discuss these subjects in detail and exchange experiences in a number of working group sessions.
