Storage & Solubility Information
Description Saquinavir is a potent HIV protease inhibitor, is an antiretroviral drug used together with other medications to treat or prevent HIV/AIDS.
In vivo The AUC was not affected by grapefruit juice after intravenous administration, but it increased significantly from 76+/-96 (water, mean (s.d.) to 114+/-70 (microg l[-1] h) (grapefruit juice) after oral saquinavir. Similarly, the oral bioavailability of saquinavir increased by a factor of 2 with grapefruit juice (from 0.7% to 1.4%). In contrast, clearance, volume of distribution and elimination half-life of saquinavir were not affected by grapefruit juice. After oral, but not after intravenous administration, the plasma concentration-time curve showed a second peak after lunch irrespective of pretreatment, suggesting enhancement of absorption by food[1].
Animal Research After an overnight fast, eight healthy volunteers were treated with either 400 ml grapefruit juice or water before intravenous (12 mg) or oral saquinavir (600 mg) was administered.?Serial blood samples were obtained over the following 24 h and standardized meals were served 5 and 10 h after the administration of saquinavir.?The plasma concentrations of saquinavir were determined by high-performance liquid chromatography and pharmacokinetic parameters were calculated by routine methods[1].

Molecular Weight Calculator

Molarity Calculator allows you to calculate the

  • Mass of a compound required to prepare a solution of known volume and concentration
  • Volume of solution required to dissolve a compound of known mass to a desired concentration
  • Concentration of a solution resulting from a known mass of compound in a specific volume
See Example

An example of a molarity calculation using the molarity calculator
What is the mass of compound required to make a 10 mM stock solution in 10 ml of water given that the molecular weight of the compound is 197.13 g/mol?
Enter 197.13 into the Molecular Weight (MW) box
Enter 10 into the Concentration box and select the correct unit (millimolar)
Enter 10 into the Volume box and select the correct unit (milliliter)
Press calculate
The answer of 19.713 mg appears in the Mass box


Calculator the dilution required to prepare a stock solution

Calculate the dilution required to prepare a stock solution
The dilution calculator is a useful tool which allows you to calculate how to dilute a stock solution of known concentration. Enter C1, C2 & V2 to calculate V1.

See Example

An example of a dilution calculation using the Tocris dilution calculator
What volume of a given 10 mM stock solution is required to make 20ml of a 50 μM solution?
Using the equation C1V1 = C2V2, where C1=10 mM, C2=50 μM, V2=20 ml and V1 is the unknown:
Enter 10 into the Concentration (start) box and select the correct unit (millimolar)
Enter 50 into the Concentration (final) box and select the correct unit (micromolar)
Enter 20 into the Volume (final) box and select the correct unit (milliliter)
Press calculate
The answer of 100 microliter (0.1 ml) appears in the Volume (start) box

Definitions of molecular mass, molecular weight, molar mass and molar weight:
Molecular mass (molecular weight) is the mass of one molecule of a substance and is expressed n the unified atomic mass units (u). (1 u is equal to 1/12 the mass of one atom of carbon-12)
Molar mass (molar weight) is the mass of one mole of a substance and is expressed in g/mol.
