High performance liquid chromatography (HPLC) has been widely used for the analysis of antibiotics because it is superior to conventional microbiological assays in terms of specificity, sensitivity and analysis time. In this article, HPLC conditions for the analysis of a variety of antibiotics are summarized. For analysis of biological samples, not only extraction methods but also derivatization methods are described, if necessary. Since it is not possible to list HPLC methods for all antibiotics in clinical use, only a few have been chosen from each class. Where a stereoisomer exists for the antibiotic of interest, the HPLC conditions that are able to resolve stereoisomers are described.
