Two wavelength ranges were selected 281-295 nm for estimation of cefixime trihydrate.<strong></strong></p><p><strong>Results: </strong>The linearity was found to be 5-25 Î¼g/ml for cefixime trihydrate. The mean % recoveries were found to be 100.97%, 100.58%, 99.60% and 101.14% of zero, first, second derivatives and area under curve method of cefixime trihydrate. For Repeatability, Intraday precision, Interday precision, % RSD were found to be 0.2106, 0.2901 and 0.22569,0.2571 for zero order, 0.0008,0.6438 and 5.7700,0.3201 for first order, 5.2358,0.5701 and 0.0003,1.8601 for second order and 4.2571,0.7251 and 0.0582,1.2563 for area under the curve method respectively. Limit of Detection and Quantitation were found to be 0.42Î¼g/ml and 1.35Î¼g/ml for zero order, 0.416Î¼g/ml and 0.952Î¼g/ml for first order, 0.718Î¼g/ml and 2.314Î¼g/ml for second order, 0.819Î¼g/ml and 2.429Î¼g/ml for area under curve method respectively. Assay results of market formulation were found to be 100.97%, 100.58%, 99.60% and 101.14% for zero order, first order, second order and area under the curve method respectively. The proposed method has been validated as per ICH guidelines and successfully applied to the estimation of cefixime trihydrate in its Tablet dosage form.</p><p><strong>Conclusion: </strong>The developed methods can be concluded as accurate, sensitive and precise and can be easily applied to the pharmaceutical formulation.</p><p class="Default">Â </p>}, number={6}, journal={International Journal of Pharmacy and Pharmaceutical Sciences}, author={Mali, Audumbar Digambar}, year={2015}, month={Jun.}, pages={321–325} }
