Calibration & Checking of Measuring Equipment
The Malaysian Association of Clinical Biochemists organized a workshop on “CALIBRATION & CHECKING OF MEASURING EQUIPMENT” on 21-22 March 2023. The event was held at Bilik Seminar 1-6 Blok D, Fakulti Sains Kesihatan UKM Kampus Kuala Lumpur Jalan Raja Muda Abdul Aziz, Kuala Lumpur. The workshop aimed to provide training on the calibration and checking of measuring equipment, including thermometer, timer, balance, pipette, and pH meter, according to MS ISO 15189: 2014 Technical Requirement of Calibration & Checking of Measurement Equipments. Around 80 participants attended the workshop, which received positive feedback.
The workshop began with an introduction to the importance of calibration and checking of measuring equipment in clinical biochemistry. The participants learned about the technical requirements of MS ISO 15189: 2014 and the proper techniques for calibration and checking of the equipment. The workshop covered topics such as the use of thermometer, time, balance, pipette, and pH meter.
The training was conducted by experienced speakers who were well-versed in the subject matter. The participants received hands-on training in the calibration and checking of the measuring equipment. The speakers also provided guidance on troubleshooting equipment-related problems that can occur in clinical biochemistry laboratories.
The participants rated the online registration process 4-5 stars. Some participants suggested improving the group activities, where MACB could provide better presentations and make it a small group. They also commented on the facility/seminar room, which was quite compact to accommodate the participants. However, overall the participants were satisfied with the content provided during the workshop training. The speakers were knowledgeable and provided valuable insights into the calibration and checking of measuring equipment.
In conclusion, the “CALIBRATION & CHECKING OF MEASURING EQUIPMENT” workshop organized by the Malaysian Association of Clinical Biochemists was a successful event that provided valuable training to participants. The speakers were experienced and well-versed in the subject matter, and the participants received hands-on training in the calibration and checking of measuring equipment. The participants provided positive feedback, and some suggested improvements for future events. The workshop was a great opportunity for clinical biochemists to enhance their knowledge and skills in the field of calibration and checking of measuring equipment. The participants suggested that this type of training should be organized annually.
