Validation. Uncertainty. Control chart.
Ciclo AQAC (Analytical Quality Assurance)
The ConfLab Software is based on AQAC (Analytical Quality Assurance Cycle) concept , published in one of the most important international journals (with the most impact factor in analytical chemisty) and currently applied in numerous references for validation, uncertainty and Quality Control [02-05].
In this way, ConfLab introduces the validation module, in which all statistical tests comply with the most rigorosous validation protocols; The uncertainty module that makes an appropriate estimate using validation information and equipments applied during the analysis; and the quality control module, capable to monitor the results during the routine using control charts.
Considering that these calculations are related in the same database, it is possible, through the AQAC, to update the validation data and uncertainty estimation based on the results of the quality control.
Currently, the validation, uncertainty estimation and quality control are prominent requirements in the current edition of ISO/IEC 17025, this way, ConfLab is an excellent ally to meet 100% of these requirements.

Know the ConfLab softwares.
It evaluates the degree of confidence in the laboratory method, standard or developed, according to statistical studies through various parameters with the issuance of a final report with the results obtained.
It estimates the variations arising from the analytical method that is applied to the measurement.
Maintains the quality confidence of its analytical results by monitoring the laboratory routine (by applying control charts).
