A Statistical Model To Evaluate Analyte Homogeneity for a Material
Abstract:An underlying assumption for collaborative studies is that the analyte variation among test samples of the material (i.e., matrix and analyte concentration combination) under study has a negligible influence on the estimates of precision for the method. This assumption is expected to be fulfilled when the material under study is prepared (i.e., thoroughly mixed) such that the analyte is distributed uniformly throughout the matrix. Statistical design and intra-class correlation analysis procedures are proposed to assess the similarity oragreement among analytical results among- and within-containers for single and multiple occasions of use (e.g., collaborative and proficiency studies).

- The Journal of AOAC INTERNATIONAL publishes refereed papers and reviews in the fields of chemical, biological and toxicological analytical chemistry for the purpose of showcasing the most precise, accurate and sensitive methods for analysis of foods, food additives, supplements and contaminants, cosmetics, drugs, toxins, hazardous substances, pesticides, feeds, fertilizers and the environment available at that point in time. The scope of the Journal includes unpublished original research describing new analytical methods, techniques and applications; improved approaches to sampling, both in the field and the laboratory; better methods of preparing samples for analysis; collaborative studies substantiating the performance of a given method; statistical techniques for evaluating data. The Journal will also publish other articles of general interest to its audience, e.g., technical communications; cautionary notes; comments on techniques, apparatus, and reagents.
