The validation of an analytical method is the process by which it is established that the performance characteristics of the method, such as Precision, Accuracy, Specificity, Linearity, Limit of Detection (LOD), Limit of Quantitation (LOQ) and Robustness meet the requirements for the intended applications. This SOP refers specifically to HPLC. However, the same principles may be applied to validations of other types of analytical procedures. Well-characterised reference materials with documented purity should be used to perform the validation.

The optimum wavelength for a method can be found by acquiring the chromatographic data on a PDA detector over a large wavelength range, (e.g. 200-400nm). The optimum wavelength is the wavelength, which maximises the response for all the components of interest, but is outside the absorbance for the mobile phase. Before validating an HPLC method, its Specificity must be determined. If the method does not comply with the Specificity requirements, the method must be modified until the acceptance criteria are met. Hence it is essential that the Specificity be adequate, before Precision, Linearity and Accuracy, etc. are performed.
