Separation of Trimethobenzamide with a Simple Isocratic Method 

The USP Assay Method of Trimethobenzamide is performed by titration. This alternative HPLC approach is fast, easy, and reliable. It has many advantages over the titration Method, including ease of automation and less operator-dependent results.

This simple isocratic Method provides sufficient Retention of the API to allow for Separation from other matrix components yet still is fast enough for high throughput of samples. Data from two Column lots shown in the figure illustrates the reproducibility of the Method and it robustness.
