Cephalexin can be analyzed by this reverse phase (RP) HPLC method with simple conditions. The mobile phase contains an acetonitrile (MeCN), water, and phosphoric acid. For Mass-Spec (MS) compatible applications the phosphoric acid needs to be replaced with formic acid. Smaller 3 µm particles columns available for fast UPLC applications. This liquid chromatography method is scalable and can be used for isolation impurities in preparative separation. It also suitable for pharmacokinetics.
High Performance Liquid Chromatography (HPLC) Method for Analysis of Amoxicillin and Cephalexin.
Both amoxicillin and cephalexin are beta-lactam antibiotics. Beta-lactam antibiotics contain a beta-lactam ring in their molecular structure. As a group, these drugs are active against many gram-positive, gram-negative and anaerobic organisms. Both compounds can be retained and baseline separated with an isocratic method in 30/70 Acetonitrile (ACN) and water mobile phase with a Sulfuric acid (H2SO4) buffer. UV detection at 250 nm.
