Efficient Method Development on Pharmaceutical Impurities Using Single Quadrupole Mass Spectrometer
This article introduces the development of a robust LC method for impurities on Montelukast. By changing each parameter of gradient program, the resolution of Montelukast and each impurity was evaluated by visualizing through design space. Though it was previously difficult to accurately track each impurity with similar UV spectra using photodiode array detector (PDA), LCMS-2050 can solve this problem. Furthermore, by utilizing design space of resolution and RT of last eluting peak, it is possible to efficiently develop method that provides both excellent resolution and shorter analysis time.
Efficient Method Development through Design Space Evaluation on Different Brand of Columns
This article introduces an example of column screening using the design space evaluation concept. The selectivity of six brands of C18 column was visualized by design spaces considering different mobile phases composition and different gradient program. This makes it possible to understand the impact of the parameters on separation, enabling to search for the best column with a smaller number of analyses. In this article, it was found that the Shimadzu Shim-pack Arata C18 column has unique selectivity in comparison with the other C18 columns.
Efficient Method Development on Pharmaceutical Impurities based on Analytical Quality by Design
Since pharmaceutical impurities requires strict control to ensure safety, development of highly reliable analysis methods is necessary. This article introduces an example of its use in optimization and robustness evaluation of the column and mobile phase selected in the initial screening in order to realize high efficiency in the development of a robust LC method for impurities on ketoprofen. The resolution of each compound was evaluated by visualizing a "design space" after changing mobile phase composition, oven temperature and flow rate. In the step of robustness evaluation following optimization, resolution of each lot of columns was visualized and compared by design space to efficiently evaluate robustness among different lot of columns.
