Abstract The application of microbore systems (15 cm X 1 mm I.D. columns filled with Nucleosil C18, 5 microns particle size) to the determination of cephalexin and cadralazine in plasma was investigated. Factors such as mobile phase flow-rate, detector flow-cell volume and injection volume were examined with regard to the needs of routine drug analysis. Mobile phase flow-rates of 50-60 microliters/min were used. A flow cell with an optical path length of 6 mm and an intermediary volume (2.4 microliters) was selected for UV detection in order to obtain sufficient sensitivity. Large volumes of non-eluting solvent containing the drug were injected on the column. The addition of an ion-pairing reagent to samples containing cephalexin and cefroxadin prior to the injection was found to improve the chromatographic performance. The blood sample size required for analysis with microbore columns was smaller than that with conventional columns. The analysis time was similar and the limit of quantitation was also similar, provided that large sample volumes were injected on the microbore column.
