DEVELOPMENT AND VALIDATION OF UV SPECTROPHOTOMETRIC METHOD FOR THE ESTIMATION OF ROTIGOTINE IN NANOSTRUCTURED LIPID CARRIERS
by Ms. JAGRUTI B. PRAJAPATI, 14 Nov 2019

Rotigotine (RTG) loaded Nanostructure Lipid Carriers (NLCs) were developed for the treatment of Parkinson’s disease. To estimate RTG entrapped in NLCs, UV spectrophotometric method was developed and validated. The solvent and wavelength of detection were optimized in order to maximize sensitivity of proposed method. The method was validated for different parameters like Linearity, Precision, Specificity, Accuracy, Limit of Detection (LOD), Limit of Quantitation (LOQ) and Robustness as per ICH guidelines. A wavelength maximum of RTG in methanol: chloroform (6:4) mixture was found at 273 nm. The method was found to be linear in the range of 40 to 200 µg/mL with a correlation coefficient (r2) of 0.998. The accuracy of the method was studied by recovery study and % recovery was found in range of 99 to 100.37 %. The LOD and LOQ were found to be 0.09 µg/mL and 6.1 µg/mL respectively. The method is simple, accurate and requires relatively inexpensive instrument. The method was used successfully for determination of AGM loaded into NLCs.
