What is a dissolution bath?

The vessels of the dissolution method are usually either partially immersed in a water bath solution or heated by a jacket. An apparatus is used on solution within the vessels for a predetermined amount of time which depends on the method for the particular drug.

Why is 900 ml dissolution media?

Most likely, the volume was lowered to 900mL to account for volume displacement from the product and stirring shaft. This gives some wiggle room in the test, so that the vessel doesn’t spill over during the dissolution.

What is S1 and S2 in dissolution?

The dissolved amount of each unit in S1 stage should not be less than Q+5%. It shows that each product should exceed 5% of the dissolved amount specified in the individual Manograph. If any of the units falls below the limit, then we have to reanalyse the sample in the next stage. i.e. S2 stage.

Why we use only six bowls for dissolution of a drug?

The use of six dosage units as the basic sample size in dissolution is partially due to the configuration of the dissolution test assembly with six positions.

How many types of dissolution are there?

Currently, there are seven different types of dissolution apparatus defined in the United States Pharmacopeia (USP)-basket type, paddle type, reciprocating cylinder, flow through cell, paddle over disc, rotating cylinder, and reciprocating disc.

What is the principle of dissolution?

Dissolution is the process in which a substance forms a solution. Dissolution testing measures the extent and rate of solution formation from a dosage form, such as tablet, capsule, ointment, etc. The dissolution of a drug is important for its bioavailability and therapeutic effectiveness.

What is f1 and f2 in dissolution?

The fit factors can be expressed by two approaches: f1 (the difference factor) and f2 (the similarity factor). Two dissolution profiles to be considered similar and bioequivalent, f1 should be between 0 and 15 whereas f2 should be between 50 and 1006.

Why SLS is used in dissolution media?

Abstract. Purpose: Sodium lauryl sulfate (SLS) is a commonly used surfactant in dissolution media for poorly water soluble drugs. However, it has occasionally been observed that SLS negatively impacts the dissolution of drug products formulated in gelatin capsules.

What is RSD in dissolution?

Dissolution results may be considered highly variable if the relative standard deviation (RSD) is greater than 20% at time points of 10 minutes or less and greater than 10% RSD at later time points. 1 However, most dissolution results exhibit less variability than this.

What is f1 and f2 value in dissolution?

The f1 value is 0 when the test and the reference profiles are identical and increases proportionally with the dissimilarity between the two profiles. The f2 value is between 0 and 100. The value is 100 when the test and the reference profiles are identical and approaches zero as the dissimilarity increases 6, 11, 12.
