IN-PROCESS CONTROLS: 

The following in-process controls should be maintained during the processing:

Check Raw materials used for manufacturing purpose are all approved materials and have ‘Released’ labels fixed on it.

All weighed Raw materials should be counter-checked by Assistant Manufacturing Chemist. If any discrepancy is noticed, it should be immediately brought to the notice of Production Pharmacist and QC/QA Manager.

Physical characteristics of Raw material like colour, odour, and consistency are checked before compounding.

Humidity and temperature should be maintained during the manufacturing, filling, polishing and packaging of the capsules.

Relative Humidity –   Less than 45 %

Temperature –   25 0C ± 2 0C

The total weight of blended powder should be checked in the presence of Assistant Manufacturing Chemist and record the same in Batch Manufacturing Record.

Bulk sample should be sent for analysis to Quality Control Department before starting the filling of hard gelatin capsules.

Intermittently the Assistant Manufacturing Chemist should check weight variation of filled capsules at interval of 30 minutes and record for the same should be kept in Batch Manufacturing Record.

Detect out of limit capsules by Weight Variation Method as follows:

The glass beaker is filled with water. The water in the beaker is retained at the temperature of 37+1˚C through out the test by suitably setting the thermostat.

Introduce a tube assembly unit into glass beaker in such a way that wire mesh at the base of each tube is atleast 2.5cm below the surface of liquid when the basket is at highest position.a) Take the average weight of 20 Capsules on the calibrated balance and calculate the upper and lower limit as per the table given below in accordance with IP/BP:

Detect out of limit capsules by Weight Variation Method as follows:

a) Take the average weight of 20 Capsules on the calibrated balance and calculate the upper and lower limit as per the table given below in accordance with IP/BP:

 

AVERAGE WEIGHT OF CAPSULES
(in mg)
MAXIMUM PERCENTAGE DIFFERENCE                                                                      ALLOWED
less than 300 mg 10
300 mg or More 7.5

Take the weight of individual Capsules and check if all the Capsules are lying with in the limits.

Select the Capsules only if no more than two Capsules are out of percentage limit and if none Capsule differs by more than 2.5 times the percentage limit, otherwise reject the Capsules.

Capsules taken for testing and In-process control should not be added to the bulk batch to avoid mix-ups and  cross-contamination.

Inspection, sorting and polishing of filled capsules should be done as per SOP 

Disintegration of filled capsules should be done using Disintegration Testing Apparatus.

Disintegration is the time required for the group of capsules to disintegrate. Disintegration Test should be carried out at regular interval of 1 hour by using Disintegration Test Apparatus.

The tube assembly unit is removed from the glass beaker and from each tube the plastic discs are removed.

Place the capsules in each of 6 tubes along with a plastic disc over the capsules.
