Sample preparation is the critical step in analysis of residues in biological samples. The development of a rugged method is time-consuming, because a huge number of parameters must be checked. To reduce the number of experiments Taguchi's method was applied in the sample preparation of metabolites of albendazole. During the experiments 11 controllable and 7 noise factors were investigated. From the influence of controllable and noise factors on recovery and standard deviation, conditions for the sample preparation and recovery could be concluded with high accuracy and reliability.
