Standard Practice for Testing Fixed-Wavelength Photometric Detectors Used in Liquid Chromatography


1.1 This practice is intended to serve as a guide for the testing of the performance of a photometric detector (PD) used as the detection component of a liquid-chromatographic (LC) system operating at one or more fixed wavelengths in the range 210 to 800 nm. Measurements are made at 254 nm, if possible, and are optional at other wavelengths.

1.2 This practice is intended to describe the performance of the detector both independently of the chromatographic system (static conditions) and with flowing solvent (dynamic conditions).

1.3 For general liquid chromatographic procedures, consult Refs (1-9).

1.4 For general information concerning the principles, construction, operation, and evaluation of liquid-chromatography detectors, see Refs (10 and 11) in addition to the sections devoted to detectors in Refs (1-7).

1.5 The values stated in SI units are to be regarded as standard.

1.6 This standard does not purport to address all of the safety problems, if any, associated with its use. It is the responsibility of the user of this standard to establish appropriate safety and health practices and determine the applicability of regulatory limitations prior to use.
