Table #: Characteristics for the data collection analytical method used for the quantitation of [chemical] residues in [matrices].

Analyte

 

Equipment ID

 

Limit of quantitation (LOQ)

 

Limit of detection (LOD)

 

Accuracy/Precision

[range of percent recoveries " coefficient of variation (specify range) indicating acceptable/unacceptable accuracy/precision in the range of spiking levels ( x).]

Linearity

[The method/detector response was linear (coefficient of determination, r2= 0.xxx) within the range of xxx - yyy mg/kg.]

Specificity

[The control chromatograms generally have no peaks above the chromatographic background and the spiked sample chromatograms contain only the analyte peak of interest.  Peaks were well defined and symmetrical.  There appeared to be no carryover to the following chromatograms].

Reliability of the Method/ [ILV]

[An independent laboratory method validation [ILV], method No. AAA , was conducted to verify the reliability of method No. AAA for the determination of (pesticide) residues in [matrices].  The values obtained are indicative that method No. is reliable].
