In this study two different methods, HPLC and UV spectrophotometry, are presented and validated for the determination of cefixime in capsules, a known antibiotic, with excellent efficacy in the treatment of urinary and respiratory infections. Cefixime was determined by HPLC method using a LiChrospher 100 RP-18 (5mm) column with mobile phase.. The access to the whole abstract and the presentation file is available to FIP members and to congress participants of that specific congress.
