Abstract

Method validation is an important requirement in the practice of pesticide residue analysis and is the process of verifying that a method is fit for its purpose. To make a correct decision on the validity of the method, the following method performance parameters have to be taken into consideration: scope, specificity, limit of detection, limit of quantification, linear range, accuracy, precision, repeatability, reproducibility, recovery, ruggedness and robustness. The goal of this study was to validate previously adapted thin-layer chromatographic methods for the pesticide residue analysis in grain. Confirmation of validation parameters for some compounds was also performed by gas chromatographic analysis.
