HPLC Determination of Streptomycin on Primesep 200 Column
Streptomycin is an antibiotic used in treating bacterial infections and has also been used as a pesticide. It is on the World Health Organization’s (WHO) list of essential medicines. It works by inhibiting the synthesis of proteins. It can be retained on a Primesep 200 mixed-mode column by hydrophobic and ion-exchange properties. The analytical method uses MS-compatible mobile phase of acetonitrile (ACN) and water with sulfuric acid (H2SO4) buffer. Also capable of UV detection at 200nm.
