Development and Validation of a RP-HPLC Method for Estimation of Prulifloxacin in Tablet Dosage Form
A simple, precise, rapid, accurate and economic reverse phase high performance liquid chromatographic method has been developed for the estimation of prulifloxacin in tablet dosage form. The separation was achieved by using octadecylsilane column (C18) and KH2PO4 buffer: acetonitrile adjusted to pH 7.3 with triethyl amine in proportion of 10:90 v/v as mobile phase, at a flow rate of 1.0 ml/min. The detection was carried out at 278 nm. The retention time of prulifloxacin was found to be 2.4 min. The limit of detection and limit of quantitation were found to be 0.14 μg/ml and 0.42 μg/ml respectively. The accuracy and reliability of the proposed method was ascertained by evaluating various validation parameters like linearity, precision, accuracy and specificity according to ICH guidelines. The proposed method provides an accurate and precise quality control tool for routine analysis of prulifloxacin in tablet dosage form.
