Since 2013, there have been 1500 reports of counterfeit drugs to WHO, especially from African, American, and European regions 1. Tackling the problem of poor drug quality, the Distributed Pharmaceutical Analysis Lab (DPAL) provides a quality analysis to quantify active pharmaceutical ingredient contents with a goal to trigger a report to the MRA or WHO2. With the support of DPAL, we would like to perform a series of chromatography experiments using the HPLC in order to identify and quantify the active pharmaceutical ingredients (API) of Amoxicillin and Ciprofloxacin.
