Some problems encountered in using high performance liquid chromatography (HPLC) for drug analysis are discussed. These include high procurement and operational costs, lengthy training required, excessive downtimes, lower precision in HPLC versus gas chromatography (GC), and lack of a universal sensitive detector. Some solutions to these difficulties are presented.
