Although it is possible to observe and measure each of the several characteristics of a detector under different and unique conditions, it is the intent of this practice that a complete set of detector specifications should be obtained under the same operating conditions. It should also be noted that to completely specify a detector's capability, its performance should be measured at several sets of conditions within the useful range of the detector. The terms and tests described in this practice are sufficiently general that they may be used regardless of the ultimate operating parameters.
Linearity and response time of the recorder or other readout device used should be such that they do not distort or otherwise interfere with the performance of the detector. This requires adjusting the gain, damping, and calibration in accordance with the manufacturer's directions. If additional electronic filters or amplifiers are used between the detector and the final readout device, their characteristics should also first be established.View Less
1.1 This practice covers the testing of the performance of a variable-wavelength photometric detector (VWPD) used as the detection component of a liquid-chromatograph
1.2 This practice is intended to describe the performance of the detector both independently of the chromatographic system (static conditions) and with flowing solvent (dynamic conditions).
1.3 For general liquid chromatographic procedures, consult Refs (1-9).
1.4 For general information concerning the principles, construction, operation, and evaluation of liquid-chromatograph
1.5 The values stated in SI units are to be regarded as standard. No other units of measurement are included in this standard.
1.6 This standard does not purport to address all of the safety concerns, if any, associated with its use. It is the responsibility of the user of this standard to establish appropriate safety and health practices and determine the applicability of regulatory limitations prior to use.
