NATA


For a number of years NATA has been running the very popular Aspects of Quality Control in the Microbiological Laboratory training course.

This two day course has been designed to provide participants with a thorough understanding of elements required in a microbiological laboratory. It is particularly relevant for laboratory personnel working in the field of biological testing, especially those analysing food, water and pharmaceutical samples.

A big factor in the popularity and success of this course derives from the developer and current presenter, Professor Stuart Andrews. Professor Andrews has been a NATA Technical Assessor since 1981 and was a member of the NATA Biological Accreditation Advisory Committee for twenty years.

Throughout the two days participants are strongly encouraged to be actively involved and ask questions specific to their own labs, with Professor Andrews saying “I don’t just stand at the front of the group and tell attendees what to do. They learn more by working things out for themselves”.

This course aims to further develop the skills and knowledge of micro staff by focussing on:

  • Managing culture collections
  • Quality control of media
  • Test methods
  • Measurement uncertainty
  • Verification and validation methods


The dates for the upcoming courses are as follows:

  • Perth - 30 June & 1 July
  • Sydney - 7 & 8 July
  • Brisbane - 14 &15 July
  • Melbourne - 21 & 22 July
  • Adelaide - 28 & 29 July
