dead / void volume [Bioanalytics]
❝ 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
- 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).
