Basic laboratory quality assurance for PhD-projects, 1,5 credits
The course is planned to include about 4 days with 4 hours of lectures and in total 2-3 practical
exercises. One day will be used for preparing and discussing lab quality aspects in the student’s own
lab work.Explain how a basic validation of a laboratory method, for example an ELISA, including determination of inter- and intra-assay variation, linearity and recovery should be performed and be able to interpret the results.
Describe how their study design and laboratory work should be planned to minimize the effects of inter/intra assay imprecision and/or limited linearity.
Explain and evaluate meaning and relevance of limit of detection, limit of quantification, limit of blank.
Use pipettes in a correct way for accurate measurement of substances, including cleaning and control weighing.
Write a good standard operation procedure (SOP) and “Lab Diary” and describe the purpose and effects these routines may have on their laboratory work.
After completing the course the student should be able to:
Admitted to a postgraduate program in veterinary medicine, animal science or to a residency or other training program in veterinary science.
