Intermediate Statistics for Laboratory Professionals (EMU 200W)

This course reviews concepts of random processes, distributions, and statistical estimation. Participants will learn basic concepts of statistical testing, methods of testing means and variances, and review examples where this would be used in the laboratory. Participants will learn basics of regression and apply them to calibration and testing results to demonstrate linearity. All topics are tied together by considering estimation of limits of detection (LOD) and limits of quantitation (LOQ).

This virtual instructor-led course will be conducted online. On the right side of the page you will see the dates and times available for this course, each with an individual registration link. Learners will attend using a virtual learning program and will participate in live discussion and activities. A webcam and microphone are required. Details about how to log into the virtual learning program will be provided after your registration is complete.


Basic Statistics for Laboratory Professionals (EMU 100) or equivalent knowledge.

Target Attendees

Target learners include Laboratory Managers, Engineers, Scientists, or Technicians.

Learning Outcomes

After successful completion of the course, the participant will be able to:

  1. Identify null and alternative hypothesis;
  2. Construct a hypothesis test for mean vs fixed value, comparing 2 means, comparing 2 variances and interpret results;
  3. Create a scatterplot and visually determine a potential relationship between 2 variables;
  4. Determine and interpret the slope and intercept for a given linear regression equation;
  5. Evaluate the variance vs. concentration relationship for calibration data;
  6. Use regression analysis to test for multiplicative and additive bias; and
  7. Understand the concepts for determining LOD and LOQ using regression-based techniques
