Principles and Practice of Method Validation

Edited by A Fajgelj and A Ambrus

The Royal Society of Chemistry, 2000 [ISBN 0 85404 783 2]


This book is an overview of the most recent approaches used for method validation in cases when a large number of analytes are determined from a single aliquot and where a large number of samples are to be analysed. Much of the content relates to the validation of new methods for pesticide residue analysis in foodstuffs and water but the principles can be applied to other similar fields of analysis.

Different chromatographic methods are discussed, including estimation of various effects, eg. matrix-induced effects and the influence of the equipment set-up. The methods used for routine purposes and the validation of analytical data in the research and development environment are documented. The legislation covering the EU-Guidance on residue analytical methods, an extensive review of the existing in-house method validation documentation and guidelines for single-laboratory validation of analytical methods for trace-level concentrations of organic chemicals are also included. With contributions from experts in the field, any practising analyst dealing with method validation will find the examples presented in this book a useful source of technical information.

This book contains lectures presented at the international workshop on 'Principles and Practices of Method Validation', held from 4 to 6 November 1999 in Budapest, Hungary. The International Association of Official Analytical Chemists (AOAC International), Food and Agriculture Organisation (FAO), International Atomic Energy Agency (IAEA), the International Union of Pure and Applied Chemistry (IUPAC) and the Plant Health and Soil Conservation Station of Budapest co-operated in the organisation of this event.
