Why the “Validation of laboratory instruments (LSV)” course?
Many laboratories work in a regulated environment and thus come into contact with GMP (Good Manufacturing Practice) and GLP (Good Laboratory Practice) regulations. These regulations hold the user responsible for the validation status of the laboratory instrument. In this course, you will learn what maintaining validation status in a laboratory environment entails; WHAT do the regulations require and HOW do you implement validation of laboratory instruments in your own working environment.
