LOQ (plural LOQs)
- (chemistry, initialism) Limit of quantification (or limit of quantitation); the lowest concentration of a substance that can be accurately measured under specified experimental. conditions.

- Therefore LOD and LOQ evaluation is only necessary for water.
- 2004, James W. Robinson, Eileen M. Skelly Frame, & George M. Frame II, Undergraduate Instrumental Analysis, →ISBN, page 59:
- For this reason, many regulatory agencies define another limit, the limit of quantitation (LOQ), which is higher than the LOD and should have better precision.
- 2005, Jack Cazes, Encyclopedia of Chromatography - Volume 2, →ISBN, page 1448:
- It is generally accepted that the LOQ is linked to method performance expectations including accuracy and precision.
- 2016, Piotr Konieczka & Jacek Namiesnik, Quality Assurance and Quality Control in the Analytical Chemical Laboratory, →ISBN:
- The required precision for the LOQ is determined (usually = 10%), and for this value the concentration equal to the LOQ is read on the graph.
