Analytical Method Quality

Control of Quantitative Analytical Methods

Xceleron employs a range of quality control standards designed to characterize and control quantitative analytical LC + AMS methods.  These are designed to control as follows:

  • The dynamic range across which the entire analytical process is deemed in control
  • Accuracy of measurement across the dynamic range for the entire process
  • Precision of measurement across the dynamic range for the entire process
  • Accuracy and precision across the dynamic range for graphitization and detection steps
  • Carryover during transfer of carbon to the detector
  • Accuracy and precision across the dynamic range for the AMS detector




Xceleron Quantitative Analytical Methodology Checklist

The transfer of a LC or LC-MS/MS assay for use by LC+AMS entails significant changes and  requires care followed by a full validation of the LC+AMS assay. Limited aspects of a previously validated LC or LC-MS/MS may be directly transferrable but insufficient testing of an LC+AMS method may introduce significant risk to the clinical study objectives and developmental timelines.

Xceleron routinely applies the following standards
