Hi Bioanalytical,

❝ For a bio analytical method how relevant is the evaluation of dead volume or void volume


Interesting1 but not relevant as long the method passes all criteria in method validation.

❝ For a method having very short retention time within void volume what should be the approach


All the usual stuff: Pumps and mixing systems with low volumes, low injection volume, narrow bore tubings as short as possible, correct column nuts and ferrules, clean frits, no dead volume on top of aged column(s)…

❝ Is it ok and should the evaluation of dead / void volume be ignored as it is estimated by LCMSMS technique


See above and this goody.2


  1. Hint: Thiourea SC(NH2)2 has practically no retention on reverse phase and can be used to estimate t0 of the entire system (including the column).

Many people tend to look at programming styles and languages like religions:
if you belong to one, you cannot belong to others.
But this analogy is another fallacy.    Niklaus Wirth
