THE PROBLEM OF EMPOWERING THE ANALYTICAL EQUIPMENT
Only the use of an effective logistical analytical framework allows for an adequate level of quality of medicines, biologically active compounds and, as a result, their effectiveness and safety. It determines the need for systematic improvement of existing methods of pharmaceutical analysis. In this regard, urgent is the problem of instrumentation deficit prevailing in our country in the post-Soviet period, which prevents the quality control of medicinal products at a level corresponding to international Good Manufacturing Practices (GMP). This fact determines the need for new and modified methods of analysis. One solution to this problem is the use of modern mass spectrometric methods. Along with such methods of analysis as the RP HPLC, TLC, UV, IR spectroscopy in the article emphasizes the prospects of use in the analysis of drugs and medicinal plant raw materials by MALDI/TOF/MS and capillary electrophoresis.
