236-Online: Verification and Validation Testing of FDA-Approved Assays-Instruments in Clinical Microbiology


Contact Hours (Points): 1.5

The most important attributes of a laboratory test are its ability to produce accurate, precise and reproducible results with a rapid turn-around-time. Thus, laboratories are required to establish the performance characteristics of new assays and to provide policies and procedures to maintain reliability, efficiency, and clinical utility of laboratory tests; this is accomplished by verification and validation testing. In a structured, yet self-paced format, the goal of this course is to discuss appropriate procedures for the verification and validation of FDA-approved (-cleared) laboratory assays to include diagnostic tests, microbial identification /susceptibility tests, and blood culture instrumentation.

This self-study was adapted from a presentation given by the authors for the CACMLE “2012 Grand Rounds in Clinical Laboratory Microbiology and Infectious Disease” Teleconference Series. The audio component of this course was modified from this presentation and divided into frame specific narrations.
