Abstract

A high-performance liquid chromatography (HPLC) assay is described for the determination of indomethacin in porcine plasma using acetonitrile to precipitate plasma proteins and for the one-step extraction. Calibration curves (using the internal standard method) are linear (r2 > 0.98) over the concentration range of 50.0 to 3000 ng/mL in both mobile phase and plasma. Precision, expressed as the inter- and intraday coefficient of variation (n = 5), is < 7% on the same day and < 5% between days at each plasma control sample of 300, 1000, and 3000 ng/mL, respectively. System precision, calculated as the coefficient of variation (n = 5), is < 7% at 3000 ng/mL of indomethacin, and the limit of quantitation in plasma is 50 ng/mL. The absolute recovery for both indomethacin and the internal standard (mefenamic acid) from plasma is over 97% (n = 3), and the concentrations do not deviate more than –2.9% to 2.4% from their actual values. The specificity of the method is confirmed. This technique is thus reported to be both rapid and specific. The real advantage is the small sample volume required (500 µL), which allows it to be considered for the quantitation of indomethacin in plasma from paediatric patients.
