      Values above the limit of quantification (LoQ) were only obtained in the 'fish' and 'alcoholic beverages' groups, but mean concentration levels in the latter group were very low (4/<gkg~1)4 in comparison to those obtained for the fish group.

      If the reproducibility (CV <15%) and accuracy (>80%) meet a prespecified value, the LoQ is validated.
    • 2015, Alfred Bartolucci, ‎Karan P. Singh, ‎& Sejong Bae, Introduction to Statistical Analysis of Laboratory Data, →ISBN, page 147:
      The empirical method is the same procedure as above for determination of LoQ but defined as the concentration at which all acceptance criteria are met and the quantitative value is within +-20% of the target concentration (i.e., CV criteria that was earlier discussed).
