9.00 am            The first day of EuroLab 2020 and CrimeLab 2020 begins


10.00 am      Official opening of EuroLab 2020 and CrimeLab 2020

The Goethe Hall


11.30 am – 12.45 pm    “Stop SMOG – ways to eliminate chemical pollution from laboratories.”,

Organizer: Laboratoria.net, Speaker: mgr inż. Paweł Chrząszcz

The Goethe Hall

During the Conference, methods of filtration of exhaust air from research stands in analyses using solid particles and concentrated or hot chemicals will be presented.

 

Issues discussed:


11.45 am – 12.30 pm    “Digital transformation in the laboratory. How LIMS can bring you into the digital age “

Organizer: Solution4Labs

The Mickiewicz Hall

Are the laboratories ready for changes? How does information technology affect the work of a laboratory employee? Can you make a “paperless” laboratory? What are the benefits of implementing the LIMS system? We will try to answer these other questions about digital transformation and show you the Thermo Scientific ™ SampleManager LIMS ™ system.

Speaker: Paweł Gawkowski – Chief Operating Officer, Solution4Labs sp.z o.o.

Gawkowski is a graduate of the West Pomeranian Technical University with distinction in the field of Computer Microsystems. He has been associated with the IT industry for 8 years. He gained experience both, in projects in the medical-laboratory and construction sectors, as well as working for small companies in the service sector. He actively participated in projects implementing LIMS class systems for EIT + and the Pomeranian Medical University, where he supervised the analysis of laboratory activities, described business and laboratory processes. Passionate about IT systems security and smart home solutions, he is ISO 27001 certified.


12.45 pm – 1.30 pm     “Spectrometers – practical solutions: transparent materials, black materials.”

Organizer: KABELKOM Sp. z o.o.

The Mickiewicz Hall


1.00 pm – 4.00 pm “Modern identification methods.”

Organizer: Institute of Forensic Research of prof. Dr. Jan Sehn in Krakow

The Goethe Hall

Technological development in recent years has caused that forensic and forensic technicians have at their disposal new tools that have streamlined the identification process both, in relation to man as well as substances, tools and methods used. More and more often, modern equipment is used outside the laboratory, e.g. at the scene of an accident or on the state border, and is served by trained but non-specialized personnel, e.g. police officers from the investigation section or customs officers. Such solutions allow for quick results, which – if necessary – can be verified by experts.

The aim of the conference will be to show how technological development has influenced the way of working and giving opinions on experts from various fields of forensic science, including genetics, anthropology and forensic dactyloscopy, document and micro traces testing, as well as identification of unknown substances in various matrices. The methods of examining digital evidence will also be presented.

Speakers will draw attention to the importance of ensuring the quality of research, including the use of objective methods of interpretation of results, which is particularly important in working for law enforcement and justice authorities.


11.30 am – 12.30 pm    “Aspects of implementing competence standards in laboratories.” Laboratory activities as defined by the requirements of PN-EN ISO / IEC 17025: 2018-02, and compliance assessment.

Organizer: Polish Centre for Accreditation

The Kisielewski Hall

NOTE: The registration for the conference panel from 11.30 am to 12.30 pm has already been closed.

In the conformity assessment system, competent (accredited) testing and calibration laboratories provide important results of tests, calibrations and measurements, which constitute a reliable basis for conformity assessment – they implement activities in the area of ​​conformity assessment. The laboratory’s compliance with the requirements of ISO / IEC 17025 is a demonstration of its competence to obtain valid test results for a specific sample, calibration and / or measurement of the characteristics of measuring devices or reference materials. These requirements do not refer to the competence in the field of conformity assessment, which is product certification or inspection, for which activities the requirements have been specified in ISO / IEC 17065 and ISO / IEC 17020, respectively. The term for laboratory used in conformity assessment systems – the unit conducting activities in the area of ​​conformity assessment is often simplified to the term “conformity assessment body”, and laboratory customers erroneously await the execution of the order formulated as “performing tests / measurements for compliance with the standard”. The provisions of the ISO / IEC 17025 standard clearly identify what is the subject of the laboratories’ activity, defining what “laboratory activity” is in practice. The consequence of defining the subject of laboratory operations is a number of requirements of the ISO / IEC 17025 standard regarding the review of offer and contract inquiries, selection, verification and validation of methods, or reporting results that are focused on ensuring transparency in terms of informing customers and potential users of results and information provided by the laboratory presented in the reports on the fact that these results do not constitute conformity assessment in terms of product certification or inspection results.

The subject of the PCA seminar will be to familiarize participants with the provisions of the ISO / IEC 17025 standard defining and defining the scope and object of laboratory laboratories and the resulting practical consequences for the cooperation of laboratories with clients and presenting (formulating) test results, calibrations and measurements in issued documents (reports). In particular, as part of the seminar, the requirements for accredited laboratories resulting from accreditation conditions regarding the reference of laboratories to accreditation in test reports, sampling reports and calibration / measurement certificates will also be discussed.


12.45 pm – 2.15 pm     “The role and tasks of the Military Center for Standardization, Quality and Codification in the Ministry of National Defense, in particular in the area of ​​accreditation for the needs of national defense and security.”

Organizer: Military Centre for Standardization, Quality and Codification

The Kisielewski Hall

In program:


1.45 – 2.30 pm – “From chemical risk assessment to safety solutions”

Organizer: ERLAB

The Mickiewicz Hall

Speaker: Emilian Dykiert                      

Chemical safety is a challenge in all laboratories.

What is the procedure to follow to insure total safety :


2.45 pm – 3.45 pm “Aspects of implementing competence standards in laboratories.” Laboratory activities as defined in the requirements of PN-EN ISO / IEC 17025: 2018-02, and compliance assessment.
