robust
Explanation:
The expression "robust method" is quite common in academic, technical and scientific texts (or chromatography, in this case). To me, it just means the method is sound, reliable.

A quick Google search for "robust method" shows over half 1 million entries.
"Sound method" gets 150,000 hits... and "reliable method" 2,300,000 results. So, if you think your teacher is looking for a synonym, IMHO you could use reliable or sound, no problem :-)

agree  Muriel Vasconcellos: I understand. But I taught translation for many years, and that's the kind of trap I would set to make students aware that the cognate is often the correct choice.
