Dr. Deborah French Shares Insight on Validation of Clinical LC-MS/MS in Educational Webinar

Share:

LabRoots will host the event September 18, in which participants will learn from a discussion of best practices and solutions for determining common validation parameters such as precision, linearity, matrix effects, extraction recovery, and accuracy.

YORBA LINDA, Calif. (PRWEB) August 23, 2018

Clinical laboratories have increasingly adopted LC-MS/MS due to the potential it has for increased sensitivity and specificity over more commonly used analytical techniques. However, implementation can be daunting due to the complex nature of the instrumentation and the added burden of development and validation of methods that must be undertaken by the laboratory if they are laboratory developed tests (LDTs).

This presentation will discuss best practices for validating clinical LC-MS/MS methods including writing a validation plan, pre-validation recommendations, and post-validation monitoring. Along with best practices and solutions for determining parameters, through this webinar attendees will gain a better understanding of how to write a validation plan and pre-validation recommendations. They will also learn to write validation summary and establish LC-MS/MS data review and reporting criteria.

The speaker for this event will be Dr. Deborah French, assistant director of Chemistry, University of California San Francisco Clinical Laboratories.

French received her doctorate in biochemistry from the University of Strathclyde in Glasgow, Scotland. Currently, French is the assistant director of chemistry and director of mass spectrometry at UCSF Clinical Laboratories. In these positions, she develops and validates mass spectrometry assays for steroid hormones, therapeutic drug monitoring, and toxicology, teaches clinical laboratory scientists and residents about clinical chemistry and mass spectrometry, and oversees the running of the Chemistry Section with the Director of Chemistry.

LabRoots will host the webinar September 18, beginning at 9 a.m. PDT. To learn more about this event, discover the continuing education credits available, or to register for free, click here.
