Analytical phase includes the use of standard method or a validated method, calibration of instrument and reaffirming the confidence in the calibration as per laid down schedule, use of valid reference material, internal standards, quality control samples and use of quality reagents.
Post-analytical phase encompasses interpreting and verifying results, reporting the results with all the necessary details and reviewing the QC.
