Last modification on: 26/05/2015 - 12:52

analytical validation process

Covering the fields of application of health, environment, food-processing and chemistry, the minor introduces a method which enables the engineers to cope with the diversity of existing analytical problems.
This minor gives the tools to master the main analytical technics used in laboratories, it initiate into sampling theory and examines the technical and methodological aspects of on-line industrial assays.
The minor includes the regulatory approaches for the enhancement and management of data for quality insurance. It therefore gives complementary skills for the engineers to easily integrate the laboratory workplace or the production tool.
