Abstract:  A high-performance liquid chromatographic assay method for the quantitation of alatrofloxacin in intravenous (IV) admixtures has been developed. The method is accurate and precise, with a percent relative standard deviation of 1.2% based on five injections. The method is stability indicating since the product of decomposition, trovafloxacin, did not interfere with the assay procedure. The IV admixtures of alatrofloxacin (1.88 mg/mL) in 5% dextrose and 0.45% sodium-chloride injections were stable for at least nine days when stored at room temperature. The pH values of the admixtures did not change and they remained clear throughout this study.
