Liquid chromatographic determination of amprolium in poultry feed and premixes using postcolumn chemistry with fluorometric detection.

Abstract

Two extraction and liquid chromatographic procedures are presented which separate amprolium from compounds in poultry feed or premixes that could interfere with its fluorometric determination. The procedures are based on earlier work on the determination of thiamine in food samples. Amprolium is extracted from feed with a hexane-aqueous sulfosalicylic acid mix, separated on a C18 column, and detected fluorometrically after postcolumn derivatization. For premixes, water extraction is used. Values for the amprolium content of poultry feed obtained with these procedures are in good agreement with those obtained with AOAC official methods. It is suggested that these methods with suitable modifications may be of use for routine analysis of amprolium in feeds. The overall methods are rapid and appear to give reasonable results.
