Second-order universal calibration


Quantification and qualification of an analyte of interest in pharmaceutical tablets from different manufacturers/companies are a hard task because of the potential presence of various interfering molecules. Indeed, the composition of the tablets covers a wide range of interferents which can be even unknown. As a consequence, we propose to determine the concentration of an analyte of interest regardless of the interferents using the concept of universal calibration. Universal calibration paves the way to the quantification of a specific chemical entity in samples with various compositions and different interferents. This is possible by the trilinear structure of analyte's signal. In fact, the second-order advantage resulting from the second-order universal calibration models is exploited. However, a new second-order calibration strategy was conducted in this work using Trilinear Factor Extraction (TFE). A simulated data set was exemplified to highlight the ability of the proposed procedure in order to accurate extraction of the analyte's concentration profile. Additionally, two real data sets were also explored in order to test the TFE method. In the first case, Acetaminophen was quantified using fluorescence spectroscopy in tablets with different formulations from 6 companies. In the second experimental data, a peptide (Valine-Tyrosine-Valine) was successfully quantified in different samples using spectrofluorimetric data. Finally, these real data sets were analyzed by Multivariate Curve resolution – Alternating Least-Squares (MCR-ALS) under non-negativity and trilinearity constraints for the sake of comparison. The calculated Root Mean Square Error of Predictions (RMSEP) of Acetaminophen were 0.028 and 0.026 for the MCR-ALS and TFE models, respectively. On the other hand, for the second experimental data set, the RMSEP were 0.216 and 0.165, respectively. Finally, based on a paired t-test, the results of MCR-ALS and TFE were not significantly different.
