Hi Helmut,

» IMHO, calculating the S:N is no more than a finger excercise unless required by the method (e.g., traces in accredited environmental analysis where a true blank matrix does not exist).

Yes I think this is my point stated in oher words. There is no universally agreed method to define s:n so as a consequence it is hardly effective or relevant to have a rule about its quantity.

» In bioanalytical methods I'm not sure whether it should be part of an (optional anyway) system suitability test. Playing the devil's advocate - two methods, A/P at the LLOQ 20/20%, S/N 10 or 15/15 5?

I don't follow this terminology, can you explain what you mean? My hindsight is 20/20.
S:N is done at the LLOQ, as far as I know. If it is "good enough" at the LLOQ then it is supposedly also "good enough" (whatever that means) anywhere above the LLOQ.

I could be wrong, but...

Best regards,

R's base package has 274 reserved words and operators, along with 1761 functions. I can use 18 of them (about 14 of them properly). I believe this makes me the Donald Trump of programming.

Enlightenment is man’s emergence from his self-imposed nonage
for which he himself was responsible.
Nonage is the inability to use one’s own intellect
