This year, for the 10th edition of the Forum Labo - Biotech, a session of the Expert Forum will put quality in the spotlight. Organized in partnership with Christine Stemmer of Horizons Quality, this session will take the form of presentations made by control laboratories, followed by debates and animations with presentations.
A sign of reliability and synonymous with protection for the user, the quality in the laboratory leads to cost constraints and management difficulties.
Despite these limitations, laboratories have pursued innovative or excellent approaches on certain aspects of quality.
Three themes have been chosen to illustrate this recurring question, in this period when quality will become the tool increasingly used to protect the end user from any process, product or result.
- Laboratory computing: a few basic rules for setting specifications. To avoid an unnecessarily excessive increase in set-up costs, the tool to be implemented must be clearly defined in the specifications.
- Skills management: a requirement and an opportunity. Skills control is essential to achieving the expected quality but requires significant monitoring and time investment on the part of staff.
- The metrological process: joining the useful with the economic. Metrology is at the heart of the paradox that companies must manage, namely more safety for the consumer and increasing pressure on costs and margins.
A 2013 edition enriched with new features with enhanced scientific content:
- Forum LABO - BIOTECH 2013 hosts the SEP Congress, AfSep's 10th Francophone Congress on Separative Sciences and Couplings, bringing together more than 300 specialists,
- the first Innovation Trophies will reward the most successful new products presented on the exhibitors' stands,
- an increased presence of the Savantes Societies, grouped in the Village,
- several Posters spaces.
