The azithromycin broad-spectrum macrolide antibiotic, is generally used to treat genitourinary, respiratory, and enteric infections. The development of analytical techniques and the different currently employed techniques for estimating azithromycin, both in pharmaceutical dose form or in bulk, are the primary focus of the current study. Analytical techniques are crucial for determining compositions as they allow us to employ state-of-the-art analytical equipment to collect both qualitative and quantitative data. Chromatographic, electrochemical, spectroscopic, and other methods can be used to analyse azithromycin. These methods aid in understanding key process factors and restricting the negative impact they have on accuracy and precision. Analytical technique development is required for maintaining high commercial product quality standards and to comply with rules and regulations. In response to the reference, regulatory bodies in various nations have developed policies and procedures for giving approval, authentication, and registration.
