PANIC’s Validation Workshop has developed into an excellent opportunity for NMR practitioners to share ideas and work towards solutions for common topics. This workshop's significance is evidenced by the composition of attendees representing industry, vendors, public authorities, and universities.

The workshop is not strictly focused on the validation process. Closely related topics such as the need to find a common language, setting standards and/or the organization of round-robin tests are hot issues too. In this sense, the workshop has become a driving force in the attempt to define pragmatic standards that are not derived from other analytical techniques, specifically for NMR.

A well-established element of the workshop is to provide some short lectures about key aspects and current developments in validation of NMR methods.

During the second workshop in February 2016, the attendees worked together in subgroups (Simplify NMR, Quantitative Analysis, Low-Field NMR, Validation Assistant, Reference Standards, Chemometrics). All subgroups identified the primary requirement: the existence of a common platform for gathering and sharing information. The need of establishing a Wiki-like platform was formulated as the most urgent aspect.

In the meantime, a collaboration with a University has been initiated for the coming year. We anticipate that this and similar collaborations will continue in the future. The academic partner will provide the administration and the hosting of the Wiki as well as layout and presentation of the content. They will also provide the principle literature search and work on education and publicity campaigns.

A detailed introduction of the cooperation will be given at the workshop. This will give just the working basis for further activities; it has to be filled with life.

You will have the opportunity to provide your suggestions for the Wiki’s form and content. The principal structure shall be defined during the workshop. The goal is also to establish “editorial boards” for certain topics which will determine the future contents of the Wiki. Possible topics might be Terminology, qNMR, Identification, Chemometrics, or Simplify NMR.

Don’t miss the opportunity to be part of this (most) promising movement for practical NMR!


Attendance is free but registration is necessary. As the conference date approaches, keep an eye out for additional information, posted at www.panicnmr.com, www.nmrvalidation.org and in NMR-related LinkedIn groups (NMR Validation, PANIC).
