ABSTRACT

A simple, precise and rapid stability-indicating ultra-performance liquid chromatography (UPLC) method is developed for the simultaneous quantitative determination of Telmisartan, Amlodipine besylate and Hydrochlorothiazide from their innovative poly pill combination drug product in the presence of degradation products. It involves a 100 mm x 2.1 mm, 1.7 μm C-18 column. The separation is achieved on a simple gradient method. The mobile phase A contains a mixture of sodium perchlorate buffer pH 3.2 (0.053M): acetonitrile in the ratio 90:10, v/v, and mobile B contains a mixture of sodium perchlorate buffer pH 3.2 (0.053M): acetonitrile in the ratio 20:80, v/v. The flow rate is 0.6 mL min(-1) and the column temperature is maintained at 55°C.The gradient program (T/%B) is set as 0/5, 1.2/5, 1.6/40, 4/40, 4.1/5 and 4.5/5. The detector wavelength is 271 nm for Hydrochlorothiazide and Telmisartan and 237 nm for Amlodipine. The retention times of Telmisartan, Amlodipine, and Hydrochlorothiazide are 3.6 minutes, 3.2 minutes and 0.9 minutes; respectively. The total runtime for the separation of the three active compounds and their degradation products is 4.5 minutes. The described method is validated with respect to system suitability, specificity, linearity, precision and accuracy. The precision of the assay method is evaluated by carrying out six independent assays of T, A and H (0.032 mg mL(-1) of T, 0.004 mg mL(-1) of A, 0.01 mg mL(-1) of H). The accuracy of the method is evaluated in triplicate at three concentration levels, i.e. 50%, 100% and 150% of target test concentration (0.64 mg mL(-1) of T, 0.08 mg mL(-1) of A, 0.2 mg mL(-1) of H). The described method is linear over the range, 16 to 48 μg mL(-1) for T, 2 to 6 μg mL(-1)A and 5 to 15 μg mL(-1) for H. The method is fast and suitable for high-throughput analysis allowing the analysis of about 250 samples per working day.
