In the laboratory world, a method, as defined by the United States Environmental Protection Agency via its SEDD Specification Version 5.2, "corresponds to a defined process for the identification and quantification of selected analytes. The analyte list for a method often corresponds to compounds or substances measurable after one analysis on one analytical instrument. A method should include specifications for the type, frequency, and performance criteria for quality control samples."[1]
