Instrument calibration
1. Disolution Apparatus 1 & 2 - Mechanical calibration
Calibration of Dissolution Apparatus 1&2
Recently FDA has released a new guidance on Calibration of disolution apparatus 1 & 2. This guidance document more emphasis on enhanced mechanical calibration than chemical performance verification test. This guidance also recommends to manufacturer take appropriate control to handle recognised source of significant variablity during dissolution testing like dissolved gases, vibration and vessel dimensions. For more information go through the link .Guidance to industry -Dissolution

                        Dissolution procedure toolkit
USP released the version 2 of dissolution tool kit procedure for mechanical calibration and performance verification test apparatus 1 & 2. The dissolution toolkit provides a description of best practices associated with the mechanical calibration and performance verification test for the USP basket and paddle dissolution apparatuses and test assemblies.This second version of the dissolution toolkit represents a continuing effort to provide detailed information describing the procedures that if used will assure a properly qualified dissolution test assembly. For more information click Disolution Toolkit Procedure Version-2.
