|Title:||Simultaneous determination of streptomycin and oxytetracycline in agricultural antimicrobials by CZE after an experimental design|
|Abstract:||A capillary zone electrophoresis (CZE) method was developed and validated for the simultaneous determination of both streptomycin (STP) and oxytetracycline (OTC) in bactericidal products to be used in agriculture. Using fused-silica capillaries, the influence of the electrolyte composition, PH and concentration, as well as temperature and applied voltage were investigated using a central composite design to optimize the method. The optimized electrophoretic conditions were as follows: 0.10 M sodium phosphate, pH 2.5, 7.0 kV and 20.0 degrees C. The method was validated for STP and OTC determination in agricultural formulations through the following performance criteria: linearity and linear range, sensitivity, selectivity, intra-day and inter-day precision, detectability, accuracy and ruggedness. This optimized CZE-method for the identification and quantification of STP and OTC is a potential alternative method to the HPLC methods described by the US Pharmacopeia, with the advantage that the same method could be used for the simultaneous determination of these different antibiotics.
