Webinar on Uncertainty of Measurement in Food Chemical Testing

The uncertainty of measurement is the key indicator of the quality of any experimental result. Proper consideration of measurement uncertainty is imperative when testing a sample against the legal/compositional limits. This task could be quite challenging when the entity measured in an investigated sample is so close to the limit, that its uncertainty, however estimated, critically affects the decision-making.

This webinar will cover the basic concept of measurement of uncertainty and the terms related to it. The sources of uncertainty and calculation of uncertainty for selective parameters would be discussed. The revised standard of ISO 17025 introduces a concept of ‘Decision Rule’ while reporting the result, which also would be explained.
