A simple, reproducible and efficient reverse phase high performance liquid chromatographic method was developed for simultaneous estimation of etoricoxib and thiocolchicoside in combined tablet dosage form. Formulation containing etoricoxib and thiocolchicoside is used as analgesic. Chromatography was performed on a 250 mm x 4.6 mm, 5-microm particle size, BDS Hypersil C-18 column with trifluoroacetic acid buffer (pH 2.6) and acetonitrile (75:25, v/v) as a mobile phase. The detection of the combined dosage form was carried out at 220 nm and a flow rate employed was 1.5 mL/min. The retention times were 6.6 and 3.1 min for etoricoxib and thiocolchicoside, respectively. Linearity was obtained in the concentration range 20 to 160 ppm for etoricoxib and in the range 2 to 16 ppm for thiocolchicoside with a correlation coefficient of 0.9918 and 0.9994, respectively. The results of the analysis were validated statistically and recovery studies confirmed the accuracy and precision of the proposed method.

Coronaviruses encompass a large family of viruses that cause the common cold as well as more serious diseases, such as the ongoing outbreak of coronavirus disease 2019 (COVID-19; formally known as 2019-nCoV). Coronaviruses can spread from animals to humans; symptoms include fever, cough, shortness of breath, and breathing difficulties; in more severe cases, infection can lead to death.

Applications of Molecular Barcoding

The concept of molecular barcoding is that each original DNA or RNA molecule is attached to a unique sequence barcode. Sequence reads having different barcodes represent different original molecules, while sequence reads having the same barcode are results of PCR duplication from one original molecule.
