Robust Separation with Excellent Peak Shapes

The USP Assay Method for Pyrantel Pamoate uses a bare Silica Column with a Mobile Phase of Acetonitrile, Acetic Acid, Water and Diethylamine. Bare Silica Columns are often less Robust than Reversed Phase Columns due to the variable nature of the adsorbed water layer and / or the ion pair loading.

This Method shows excellent Repeatability for the analytes and meets the USP System Suitability for Resolution (Rs≥10) and obtains high-efficiency Symmetrical Peaks for both Compounds.

Peaks:
1. Pyrantel
2. Pamoic Acid
