Specialist Diploma in Laboratory Management & Instrumentation


The Specialist Diploma in Laboratory Management and Instrumentation programme aims to prepare graduates for work in SAC accredited and to-be-accredited laboratories. It also serves as a platform for individuals who are involved in analytical testing in laboratories to upgrade their skills and knowledge.

Upon successful completion of the course, students will be able to:

  • describe the management and technical requirements of laboratory accreditation standards (for example, ISO/IEC 17025)
  • describe and apply knowledge on method validation
  • describe and apply measurement uncertainty and its determination
  • apply knowledge and skills on the modern analytical techniques used in laboratories
  • perform analytical testing in compliance with technical requirements of laboratory accreditation standards (for example, ISO/IEC 17025)


Target Participants
This course is targeted at diploma graduates and PMEs who are keen to work in analytical testing in laboratories in various industries such as the chemical, pharmaceutical and food industries, research institutes, R&D companies and other testing sectors.

What You Will Learn

To be awarded the Specialist Diploma in Laboratory Management and Instrumentation, participants are required to complete a total of 2 post-diploma certificates (PDCs). A certificate will be issued upon successful completion of each PDC.

Post-Diploma Certificate in Laboratory Instrumentation

Subject code Subject LevelCredit Units
AMI0101

This subject provides a review of the key theoretical concepts behind analytical techniques such as high performance liquid chromatography and gas chromatography.  Strong emphasis will be placed on hands-on practice and discussion of common troubleshooting issues using case studies. An introduction to hyphenated techniques will also be covered.

AMI0102

This subject provides a review of the theoretical concepts underpinning inductively coupled plasma technology, with a strong emphasis on hands-on practice and discussion of common troubleshooting issues using case studies. An introduction to hyphenated techniques will also be covered.

AMI0103

This subject provides a review of the theoretical concepts of mass spectroscopy. Building on the basics taught in the first two modules, this module will provide a more in-depth coverage of tandem and hyphenated techniques (e.g. GC-MS, ICP-MS) for enhancing detection and sensitivity limits. Contemporary applications such as the use of TOF (Time-of-Flight) and the quadrupole mass analyzer will be briefly discussed.

Post-Diploma Certificate in Laboratory Management

Subject code Subject LevelCredit Units
AMI0201

This subject provides an introduction to laboratory accreditation and the management and technical requirements of an accredited laboratory.  Special emphasis will be placed on the clauses of ISO/IEC 17025 and the guidance and technical documents published by SAC. Case studies on common non-conformities will be discussed to help students address pitfalls in laboratory quality management systems.

AMI0202

This subject will emphasize the importance of method validation and the key aspects of method selection, usage of laboratory-developed methods and non-standard methods. The subject also covers the parameters used for the determination of the performance of a method.

AMI0203

This subject will emphasize the importance of measurement uncertainty in the reporting of data.  The requirements of the ISO 5725 and the Guide to the Expression of Uncertainty in Measurement will also be introduced and discussed.

Modes of Assessment

  • Assignments
  • Written tests
  • Reports
  • Case study discussions
  • Quizzes

Minimum Entry Requirements

 Diploma in Applied Sciences / Engineering or equivalent

 Degree in Science / Engineering or equivalent

 Holders of other equivalent academic qualifications from foreign institutions will be considered on a case-by-case basis.

Applicants who do not meet the entry requirements may be considered for admission to the course based on evidence of at least 5 years of relevant working experience or supporting evidence of competency readiness.
