Estimation of Cyanocobalamin (Vitamin B12)
CULTURE: E. coli mutant NCIM 2567 as a test organism. The culture is maintained by sub-culturing. It on a slant of E. coli maintenance Agar medium, once a week.
1. B12 Culture agar (E. coli maintenance medium)-Hi-media M-185
2. B12 Assay agar using (E. coli maintenance medium)-Hi-media M-110.
PREPARATION OF STOCK SOLUTION:
Weigh accurately about 100mg Vitamin B12 reference standard and dissolve in sufficient water to produce 100ml.
This solution may be preserved in a refrigerator for one year.
PREPARATION OF STOCK STANDARD SOLUTION:
Dilute 2 ml of the stock solution to 100ml with water. I.e., 20mcg/ml dilution. This stock solution can be preserved for one month in a refrigerator.
PREPARATION OF WORKING STANDARD:
This stock standard is allowed to come to room temperature on the day of the assay.
0.5ml of stock standard is further diluted to 100ml with water to get 100 Nanograms vitamin b12.
One ml of the 100 Nanograms solution is diluted to 4ml to get 25 Nanograms per ml. use 25 Nanograms per ml and 100 Nanograms per ml in assay.
PREPARATION OF SAMPLE DILUTION:
Prepare the Sample suitably diluted with water to produce 25 Nanograms per ml and 100 Nanograms per ml of vitamin b12., filter the solution if necessary.
PREPARATION OF CULTURE SUSPENSION:
To 18-24 hours’ culture of E. coli mutant, add 10ml of sterile water or normal saline to make suspension. B12 assay agar is weighed and autoclaved for 15min at 15 pounds, cool to 45-degree cent. Add 1.5 ml to 2ml of culture suspension to 100ml of assay agar and mix well. Add 20 to 25ml of this agar is poured in to sterile Petri dishes of size 100mm in diameter. Allow to solidify. Make four cups is agar at proper distance to avoid overlapping of zones of inhibition. Sterilized borer of 5mm to 10mm in diameter is used to bore cups. Add 0.05 or 0.1 ml of standard solution of 100 Nanograms per ml (SH) and 25 Nanograms per ml (SL) dilutions to each agar cup.
Similarity add 0.05 or 0.1ml of test solution of 100 Nanograms per ml (TH) and 25 Nanograms per ml (TL) dilution to each agar cup labeled as test high and test low.
Cover the Petri dishes, invert and incubate them at 320C to 350C for 18 to 24 hours.
Measure the zones and calculate vitamin b12 content accordingly to the following formula:
%Assay = Antilog (2± a Log I)
Where: a= ( TH + TL) – ( SH + SL)
(TH- TL) + (SH – SL)
I = Ratio of dilution i.e. 10/25
TH= Zone of test sample with sample 100 Nanograms per ml
Tl = Zone of test sample with sample 25 Nanograms per ml
SH= Zone of standard with sample 100 Nanograms per ml
SL= Zone of standard with sample 25 Nanograms per ml
