Validation guide supplements now available in German

Blanks in validation - cover

Thanks to the work of our colleagues in Germany, the Eurachem Method Validation Working Group are pleased to publish German translations of our Validation Guide Supplements on planning and use of blanks, covering the planning and reporting of validation studies.

The planning supplement is in the form of a template for planning the evaluation of chosen performance characteristics, which can form the basis of a validation report. The supplement also contains a checklist to assist with validation planning.

The supplementary guidance on blanks in method validation describes the different types of blanks which may be used during method validation. It provides guidance for validation in situations where it may be difficult to obtain a suitable blank matrix.

ESThanks to the work of our colleagues in Eurolab Germany, Eurachem has issued a new German translation of the 2nd edition of the Eurachem/CITAC Guide "Traceability in Chemical Measurement".

The Guide is intended to help meet the requirements on traceability of results given in ISO/IEC 17025. It give principles and detailed guidance on establishing metrological traceability in chemical analysis. Although the guide aimed principally at testing and measurement laboratories, the principles are expected to apply from routine analysis to basic research.
