SIMULTANEOUS DETERMINATION OF TIGECYCLINE AND ITS POTENTIAL IMPURITIES BY A STABILITY-INDICATING RP-HPLC-UV DETECTION TECHNIQUE
Keywords:Tigecycline, Impurities, Forced degradation, HPLC analysis, Method justification
Objective: Stability representing the RP-HPLC method was established for synchronized quantification of Tigecycline and its impurities. This method was confirmed for its applicability to both tablet dosage and bulk drug forms.
Methods: Intended for an isocratic elution, a mobile phase containing methanol: 10 mmol Triethylamine Buffer mixture (75:25 v/v, pH 6.1) was used at 1 ml/min flow rate and Agilent ZORBAX Eclipse XDB C18 (250 mm × 4.6 mm, 5 μm) column.
Results: At 231 nm as wavelength, high-pitched peaks of Tigecycline (Tig) and its impurities (1and2) were detected at 6.55, 8.73 and 4.87 min correspondingly. The linearity of tigecycline and its impurities (impurity-1 and 2 and) were estimated with ranging from 75–450 µg/ml for Tigecycline and 1–6 µg/ml for both impurity 1 and 2. The corresponding recognition limits (LOD and LOQ) of the tigecycline and its impurities were originated to be (1.37,0.047 and 0.071 µg/ml) and (4.15, 0.143 and 0.126 µg/ml).
Conclusion: The technique was effectively stretched for stability signifying studies under different stress conditions. Justification of the method was done as per the current ICH guidelines.
