Variation arising when all efforts are made to keep conditions constant by using the same instrument and operator and repeating during a short time period. Expressed as the
repeatability standard deviation (SD r
); or % repeatability relative standard deviation
The standard deviation or relative standard deviation calculated from among‐laboratory
data. Expressed as the reproducibilitystandard deviation (SD R
); or % reproducibilityrelative
standard deviation (% RSD R ).
The fraction or percentage of spiked analyte that is recovered when the test sample is
analyzed using the entire method.
5. Method Performance Requirements :
See table 3 and 4.
6. System suitability tests and/or analytical quality control:
Suitable methods will include blank check samples, and check standards at the lowest point
and midrange point of the analytical range.
7. Potential Reference Material(s):
Refer to Annex F: Development and Use of In‐House Reference Materials in Appendix F: Guidelines for Standard Method Performance Requirements , 19 th Edition of the AOAC INTERNATIONAL Official Methods of Analysis (2012). Available at:
8. Validation Guidance :
Data must demonstrate ability to identify and quantitate the free amino acids in Table 1 in the presence of the non‐target compounds in Table 5. Interferences with the identification and quantitation of target compounds should be reported in the method. Method developers should be able to demonstrate that candidate methods can in fact identify and quantitate minor target compounds in the presence of greater concentrations
of other amino acids and their related compounds.
