The current research goal was to develop a novel specific method for the quantitation of the Doxorubicin. The method development was done by using a High- Performance Liquid Chromatography (HPLC). The extensive method development was conducted to identify a right combination of chromatographic conditions and validated as per the regulatory guidelines. The current method overcome the disadvantages of complex sample preparation, long runtime and improved peak shape. The simple combination of organic modifier and buffer (40:60) used to elute the Doxorubicin in isocratic mode. The shorter run time of the method was achieved by optimizing the flow rate of 0.8mL per minute along with L1-octadecyl chemistry column. The doxorubicin peak was detected by using a sensitive Ultra violet detector at 254nm. The method was completely wetted with all the key validation parameters likewise suitability, precision, selectivity, linearity, robustness and recovery. The purity threshold of more than 990 proves that the method is free from any possible interferences and the linearity was established at 5 different levels with a correlation coefficient 0.999. The overall %RSD (relative standard deviation) of mean recovery was 1.1%. The marketed commercial formulation of Doxorubicin injection was tested on the developed method to confirm the suitability of the method for both bulk active substance and pharmaceutical formulations. Based on the experimental outcome method can be regarded as inventive, short run time, specific to quantitate Doxorubicin.
