Most manufactures require that any analytical method that is used in conjunction with their production procedures follow specific guidelines that meet the companies HACCP, GMP or GLP requirements. This should include evaluation and validation of the method with each specific matrix that the assay would encounter in your facility, thus to ensure the most accurate results and avoid costly recalls.
