Please note that a laptop is needed for the practical exercises. Also, the “Minitab” software must be installed on this computer. You can download a 30 days trial version of this sofware here:


For the validation of microbiological test methods, several experiments must be performed to demonstrate that the new method is capable of detecting and counting organisms in test samples and at least as good as the compendial method. To quantify the performance, statistical methods form an indispensable tool. This workshop will provide information on the types of experiments and the statistical analyses that may be performed to estimate the validation parameters of the new rapid methods. The methods will be illustrated with real cases on the validation of rapid microbiological test methods.
