Single Laboratory Validation of a Method for Determination of Glucosamine in RawMaterials and Dietary Supplements Containing Glucosamine Sulfate and/or Glucosamine Hydrochloride by High-Performance Liquid Chromatography with FMOC-Su Derivatization
Abstract:Single laboratory validation of a method for determination of glucosamine in raw materials and dietary supplements containing glucosamine sulfate and/or glucosamine hydrochloride by with high-performance liquid chromatography FMOC-Su derivatization. Tests with 2 blank matrixes containing SAMe, vitamin C, citric acid, chondroitin sulfates, methylsulfonylmethane, lemon juice concentrate, and other potential interferents showed the method to be selective and specific. Eight calibration curves prepared over 7 working days indicated excellent reproducibility with the linear range at least over 2.0–150 μg/mL, and determination coefficients >0.9999. Average spike recovery from the blank matrix (n = 8 over 2 days) was 93.5, 99.4, and 100.4% at respective spike levels of 15, 100, and 150%, and from the sample matrix containing glucosamine (n = 3) was 99.9 and 102.8% at respective levels of 10 and 40%, with relative standard deviations <0.9%. The method was also applied to 12 various glucosamine finished products and raw materials. The stability tests confirmed that glucosamine–FMOC-Su derivative once formed is stable at room temperature for at least 5 days. Limit of quantitation was 1 μg/mL and limit of detection was 0.3 μg/mL. The method is ready to proceed for the collaborative study.
