This study contains a practical application of variance analysis for the evaluation of precision in selected ion monitoring using stable isotope variants or chemically related compounds as internal standards. Variance analysis is applied to determine the relative contributions of the errors due to long-term and short-term effects of instrument stability. The technique allows the resolution of variance due to sample manipulation from that introduced by the gas chromatography mass spectrometry instrumentation. This provides an objective measure of potential internal standards. Evaluation of the dependency of these erros upon concentration indicates appropriate weighing factors to be applied for regression analysis.
