ABSTRACT This paper describes a method for residue analysis of difloxacin and sarafloxacin in chicken muscle. Clean-up and preconcentration of the samples are effected by solid-phase extraction (C18) and the determination is carried out by capillary electrophoresis using a photodiode array detection system. The method was validated with satisfying results. The calibration graphs are linear for difloxacin and sarafloxacin from 50 to 300 microg/kg. The limit of detection obtained for difloxacin and sarafloxacin are 10 and 25 microg/kg, respectively, which allows the detection of positive muscle samples at the required maximum residue limits of European Union.

    ABSTRACT: In this study, a method for the detection of sarafloxacin in pig and chicken muscles was developed using HPLC-FLD as a regulatory residue technique. Good extraction efficiency was achieved using a mixture of 1% orthophosphoric acid-0.2 m MgCl(2) in water and acetonitrile as an extraction solvent, and n-hexane partitioning and centrifugation for cleanup was used in the absence of dehydration. Specificity, linearity, detection and quantification limits, recovery, accuracy and precision were all validated, and all results were sufficient for the SARA regulatory residue method in pig and chicken muscles. The method developed and described herein was not only simple but also reliable, and was applied to market samples to determine their residue contents.

    ABSTRACT: A new chemiluminescence method for the determination of the fluoroquinolone sarafloxacin is described. The method is based on the measurement of the chemiluminescent (CL) radiation emitted in the reaction of sarafloxacin with Ce (IV) in sulfuric acid medium and in the presence of $ \mathrm{Ru}(\mathrm{bipy})_3^{2+ } $ as sensitizer. Since the method allows the recording of the whole CL intensity-versus-time profile, the use of measurement parameters such as the maximum CL emission is possible, which is proportional to the analyte concentration. The optimum chemical and experimental conditions for the CL emission of the reaction were researched. The calibration graph was lineal in the concentration range from 5.0 to 30.0 mg L−1 of sarafloxacin. The limit of detection, according to Clayton et al. (Anal Chem 59:2506–2514, 1987), was 1.17 mg L−1. After analyzing a series of ten solutions of 10.0 mg L−1 of sarafloxacin, the estimated average concentration was 10.30 mg L−1 with a standard deviation of 0.42 mg L−1 (confidence level, 95 %). The effect on the sarafloxacin CL signal of some common excipients (sucrose, lactose, and starch) used widely in pharmaceutical preparations was also tested, as well as that of others fluoroquinolones (namely, enrofloxacin and ciprofloxacin). Finally, the proposed method was applied to the determination of sarafloxacin in different spiked egg samples by using the standard addition methodology, obtaining excellent recoveries in all cases (close to 100 %).

    ABSTRACT: A method for the residue analysis of the veterinary antimicrobial agent enrofloxacin and its active desethyl metabolite ciprofloxacin in chicken muscle tissue has been developed and validated. The detection of the analytes was performed by laser-induced fluorescence (LIF) detection using a HeCd laser (lambda(ex) = 325 nm) providing an enhancement in sensitivity and selectivity compared to conventional UV detection. The assay has been validated with satisfying results. The limits of quantification for enrofloxacin and ciprofloxacin were 5 microg/kg and 20 microg/kg, respectively, with a fivefold preconcentration yielded by a sample clean-up with a simple liquid-liquid extraction procedure. Calibration graphs were linear from 5 to 1000 microg/kg for enrofloxacin and from 20 to 1000 microg/kg for ciprofloxacin. The assay allows the detection of contaminated muscle samples at the required maximum residue limit of the European Union, which is 100 microg/kg for the sum of enrofloxacin and ciprofloxacin.
