A2LA and AOAC are presenting a joint complimentary webinar, “AOAC Q2: The Quality Bridge between the Technology Provider and the Laboratory,” on Thursday, May 11, at 2:00 PM ET, to discover how to improve instrument documentation quality and service and to enhance your current or upcoming ISO 17025 laboratory accreditation.

AOAC’s Q² Program will provide an independent third-party review of instrument manufacturer-provided technical documents, including performance criteria needed for analytical instrument system checklists and user manuals/supplemental documentation. Fundamental elements and processes for the Q² Program are based on the Good Automated Manufacturing Processes (GAMP-5) Engineering V-Model Instrument Design Process and System-Build.

After participating in this webinar, attendees will understand:

  1. The AOAC Q² Program and its ability to provide evidence of continuous TP document quality improvement
  2. Why independent expert review acts as an incentive to boost TP document enhancements on behalf of labs
  3. How the Q² Program can provide clarity and enrich your laboratory’s quality assurance
  4. The impact the Q² Program could have on decreasing the risk of receiving the most commonly cited deficiencies related to equipment and resources in ISO/IEC 17025:2017
