Have you ever struggled to understand the workflows and data in ISO, AFNOR, Microval and AOAC reports and protocols?  Ever read ISO 16140-1 and ISO 16140-3 and thought "I am ISO (In Search Of) help!"?  In this workshop, a group of industry veterans will teach attendees how to set up and execute Validation and Verification Studies with hands on exercises and traditional coursework activities.  This includes study design, strain and matrix selections and statistical analyses.  We will close with discussion of final reports and how to interpret them.
