  • After completion of Film coating perform the In Process checks as per below parameters:
Sr.No. Parameters Standard No. of Tablets In-Process Frequency
1 Product Description Orange color, elongated  biconvex, film coated tablet having one side mid break line and other side plain 20 No.  

 

 

After batch completion

2 Weight of 20 Tablets after  seal coating  12.360gm. (3 % weight gain) 20 No.
3 Average Weight after coating  618 mg (3 % weight gain) 20 No.
4 Individual Tablets Weight Variation  NMT 02 tablets out of 20 deviate from the standard average weight by more than 3 % and  no single tablet deviates from the standard average weight by more than 5 % 20 No.
5 Thickness 6.74 mm ± 0.2 mm 6 No.
6 Disintegration NMT 30 min. 6 No.

STEP– IX:

  • Send the composite sample of coated tablets (Qty. 30 tablets of each Lot) to QC department for analysis.

STEP – X:

  • Take Tare Weight of five Poly-lined HDPE Containers (capacity: 45 liter each), record the Tare Weight in BMR and transfer the coated tablets in Poly-lined HDPE Containers (capacity: 45 liter each) and weigh the coated tablets with containers and record the Gross Weight of the coated tablets and calculate the Net Weight of the material as per given formula:

Net Weight = Gross Weight – Tare weight

  • Affix the status label with following details – Product Name, Batch No., Batch Size, Avg. Weight, Mfg. Date, Exp. Date, Tare Weight, Gross Weight and Net Weight on the Poly-lined HDPE Containers.
  • Batch Yield of Coated Tablets:

Theoretical Batch Yield: 185.400 kg (100 %)

Actual Batch Yield Limit NLT 183.546 kg (NLT 99 %) (To be established in next batch).
