Cough Syrup Ingredient Analysis with HPLC – AppNote

Separation of Antitussives, Analgesics, Decongestants, and Preservatives Click HERE for Column Ordering Information. Cold and cough formulations may contain a number of components such as antitussives (Dextromethorphan), decongestants (Pseudoephedrine, Guaifenesin), analgesics (Acetaminophen), and preservatives (Methyl Paraben, Propyl Paraben, Benzoic Acid). The method illustrates good separation between a variety of these compounds, also that symmetric Peak […]

Cycloserine LCMS Separation of Impurities and Degradants – AppNote

LCMS Separation of Impurities and Degradants While two major impurities observed in this Cycloserine method were not directly identified, several possibilities can be suggested based on their m/z values in the Mass Spectrum and their relationship to the Serine structure. Serine was also identified but in very low abundance and only after the samples were […]

Lisinopril Analysis with HPLC – AppNote

Retention and Peak Shape for Highly Polar Compound As a highly hydrophilic compound, Lisinopril is not well-suited to Reversed Phase Methods. The USP assay method for Lisinopril uses a highly Aqueous Mobile Phase (96% 2.76 g / L Monobasic Sodium Phosphate adjusted to pH 5.0 / 4% Acetonitrile) in Reversed Phase with an L7 Column. […]

Asymmetric Dimethylarginine ADMA – AppNote

LCMS Method with Plasma Samples ADMA has a very narrow concentration distribution in the general population. For this reason, the method of analysis of this compound in body fluids (Plasma, Urine) should have a very high precision and accuracy to generate clinically useful results. The analysis of ADMA in Plasma Samples shown in the figure […]

Organic Bases and Isomers at a Low pH – AppNote

Separation of Four Amine Containing Test Solutes The four test solutes selected for this application are both well-retained and well-resolved. In particular, the separation between the two isomers is readily accomplished, which may be difficult to achieve in Reversed Phase. This Method uses only Formic Acid as the Mobile Phase additive and is LCMS compatible. […]

Ciprofloxacin LC-MS Compatible Assay – AppNote

Antibiotic Tablet Ciprofloxacin has several amine groups and therefore is susceptible to peak tailing in Reversed Phase methods. The USP assay method for Ciprofloxacin tablets uses Triethylamine as an Ion Pair Agent to reduce tailing and in addition, Phosphoric Acid is included in the Mobile Phase. These conditions make the USP method incompatible with MS […]

Zinc-EDTA Complex – AppNote

No Ion Pair Agents Needed Using conventional analytical methods, retention of metal–EDTA complexes is accomplished using Ion Pair Reversed Phase Chromatography. However, the Ion Pair Agents used in the Mobile Phase are not compatible with Mass Spectrometry. In this AppNote, only Formic Acid is needed in the Mobile Phase in order to obtain retention of […]
