Decoding Sample Variability and Deviation CB*~^ˠϮ
Data variability in the field and laboratory is a hot topic. Throughout the project life cycle there are many opportunities to introduce variability and in some cases result in deviating samples. Depending upon the approach of the regulators they may request resampling which comes at a high cost to the consultancy firms. This seminar assesses the key factors that contribute towards data variability and deviating samples. We also provide concise take home messages to ensure meaningful data and avoid costly resampling.
