Dean's presentation in Bangkok
Dr.V.Murugan, Dean College of Pharamceutical Sciences, Bengaluru was invited as a speaker and Guest of Honour for the two day International Conference organised by Society of Pharmaceutical Education & Research [SPER-BANGKOK, 3rd & 4th October 2019] in collaboration with Thai Industrial Pharmacists Association on the theme "Fostering Pharmaceutical Innovations to bridge the Gap in Pharmaceutical Research and Industry" at Narai Hotel, Bangkok. The conference was organised with the purpose of comprehending the vital role and importance of pharmacy and biological research in the development of novel dosage forms. The main objective of the conference was to impart a scientific basis for the integration of Pharmacy and Biological Sciences to further contribute in the development of patient-oriented therapies. As a Speaker he delivered a key note on the title "Simultaneous estimation of Alogliptin and Metformin in Pharmaceutical dosage form by High Performance Thin layer Chromatography" (HPTLC). The objective of the work was to develop and validate the HPTLC method for the simultaneous estimation of Alogliptin (ALG) and Metformin (MET) in a pharmaceutical dosage form. The Chromatographic separation was achieved on TLC aluminum plates precoated with silica gel G60 F254 as the stationary phase. The mobile phase consisted of Methanol: Tetrahydrofuran: Ammonium formate in the ratio of 3:5.5:2.5 v/v/v. The method was found to be linear in the concentration range of 0.225-1.12µg/spot for ALG and 9-45 µg/spot for MET and the correlation coefficient were found to be 0.998 for ALG and 0.992 for MET. The % RSD values were found to be within the acceptance criteria, the low % RSD indicates that proposed method is precise as per ICH guidelines. The accuracy of the method was determined and the mean recovery of ALG was 99.25-101.35% and MET was 100.49-101.79%. LOD and LOQ values were found to be 0.002 µg/spot and 0.05 µg/spot for ALG, 0.04µg/spot and 0.1 µg/spot for MET. The method reported is accurate, precise and linear for the estimation of Alogliptin and Metformin in Pharmaceutical dosage form.
