Water Quality - Calibration and Evaluation of Analytical Methods and Estimation of Performance Characteristics Part 1: Statistical Evaluation of the Linear Calibration Function
|Publication Date:||1 January 1990|
|ICS Code (Water quality in general):||13.060.01|
This part of ISO 8466 describes the steps to be taken in evaluating the statistical characteristics of the linear calibration function. It is applicable to methods requiring a calibration. Further parts of this International Standard will cover the determination of limit of detection and limit of determination, the effect of interferences and other performance characteristics.
It is intended especially for the evaluation of the pure analytical method and for the calculation of performance characteristics of the calibration function.
In order to derive comparable analytical results and as a basis for analytical quality control the calibration and evaluation of analytical methods have to be performed uniformly.
