About The Event


Many microbiology laboratories are confused about what MU is, how to calculate it and how to apply it. We will discuss what is needed to meet the accreditation requirement for MU, including, what data to collect and how to analyze it. Also a practical step by step approach to data compilation specifically applicable to microbiology will be discussed.

Why should you Attend: Upon completion of this session, attendees will learn:

  • The significance of uncertainty of measurement (MU)
  • What data must be collected to calculate MU
  • How to calculate MU
  • How to use MU estimations as part of the laboratory's Quality Management system

Areas Covered in the Session:
  • Statistical approaches to measuring precision of a method for calculating MU.
  • How to make practical use of MU data
  • Applying MU concepts to qualitative methods

Who Will Benefit:
  • Microbiological bench analysts
  • QA managers
  • Laboratory managers/supervisors and those responsible for QC
