STABILITY INDICATING RP-LC ASSAY METHOD FOR CARISOPRODOL
Objective: A reverse phase stability-indicating HPLC method was developed for the determination of Carisoprodol in pharmaceutical dosage forms. The chromatographic elution was achieved on C18, 250 mm Ã— 4.6 mm, 5-Î¼m particle size column.
Methods: The mobile phase contains a mixture of water and acetonitrile in ratio of 60:40 v/v. The flow rate was 1.0 ml min-1 and was detected by Refractive index detector.
Results: The method was proven to be linear over a range of 1 to 4 mg/ml with a mean correlation coefficient of 0.99998. The %mean recovery is in the range of 100.55% to 101.11% and %RSD was less than 1.0% between preparations. The % RSD for Assay results of initial sample preparation in different intervals of 0hr, 24 h, 30 h and 48 h was less than 1.0%. To establish stability-indicating capability of the method, drug product was subjected to the stress conditions of acid, base, oxidative, hydrolytic, thermal and photolytic degradation. The degradation products were well resolved from Carisoprodol.Conclusion: The developed method was validated as per international ICH guidelines with respect to specificity, linearity, accuracy, precision and robustness.
