Dear Thangairulappan S,

» 1) Why we are fixing IS variation range ±50% from the average IS response of accepted CCs &
» QCs.

Your choice. Guidelines say you should monitor IS response, but do not specify how. Bear in mind that ±x% limits are useful, but not sufficient. Tons of reasons why in this issue of Bioanalysis.

» (while using a deuterated IS why we not keeping ±15% or ±20% or some other range).

Actually, a number of labs are pleading that you could use wider acceptance limits if using a stable isotope labelled IS. The tighter the limits you set, the higher the number of samples you will have to re-analyse because of IS variation, with little or no added value.

» 2) If in one project ISR failure observed frequently/continuously means what will go to next
» actions and please give some examples with clarification for the reasons for those
» failures.

Some good reading material:

Some interesting information also in this more recent paper. However I would not follow all of their proposals and recommendations, as they may not be accepted by regulators:
