General Instructions

Dispensing of Raw material

 Use a nose mask and hand gloves during the operation.

Check for line clearance, and cleanliness of the area  equipment and record the observations

Check the temperature %RH  & differential pressure  of  dispensing area (20-25°c , 50±20%  NLT 1.2 mm of water)

Check for the approved label and necessary details (material name, item code, manufacturer’s name, B.no, MFG, EXP, A.R No, retest date, etc.) on the raw material container before weighing.

Check and transfer the raw material required for the batch near the dispensing booth.

Operate dispensing booth as per current SOP. Dispense the excipients first, and remove them from the dispensing area prior to active ingredient dispensing.

Make necessary entries in the manufacturing work order and the  store ledgers

Attach the duly filled dispensed material label to the dispensed raw material and transfer the dispensed material to dispensed material quarantine area.

Isopropyl Alcohol: 8.00 kg

Polyvinyl Pyrrolidone  K 30(Kollidon K 30) : 1.0 kg

Lubricant 

Colloidal Anhydrous  Silica (Aerosol 200): 1.0 kg

Croscarmellose sodium (Ac-di-SD-711) : 1.4 kg

Magnesium Stearate : 0.6 kg

Coating material issue note:

Opadry pink: 1. kg

purified water: 5.0 kg

Water contents shall be compensated based on the actual %of water in API.  If the assay of the API is more than 100%  the standard quantity of Atorvastatin calcium shall be taken Atorvastatin calcium should be micronized& the particle size of Atorvastatin calcium should be d90 below 50 microns.

Theoretically, 10.85 mg of Atorvastatin calcium is equivalent to 10 mg of Atorvastatin.

Quantity of Microcrystalline Cellulose to be adjusted based on  actual assay & % w/w  water content of Atorvastatin calcium

Calculation of material required for a single A.R no for the standard batch size 

Calculation of Atorvastatin  calcium(For Single A.R.No)

A.R.No of Atorvastatin  calcium ,Assay on Dried Basis (ODB)——-%w/w ,LOD——–%w/w

The standard quantity of Atorvastatin calcium for batch on 100% Basis(Q)in Kgs i.e. 2.17 Kgs for 200000 tablets batch size as per BMR.

Actual Quantity to be issued  Std Qty (Q) *100*100

against of Atorvastatin  calcium (Q1)in Kgs  =  Assay on (ODB)*(100-LOD)

Note: if the quantity of Atorvastatin calcium is insufficient for the batch then proceed with under mentioned calculation.

Calculation of material required if the material available is not sufficient from one Batch or Lot, then the calculation of the next  Lot/Batch shall be performed as under.

From first A.R No. quantity of batch available (Q1) which is insufficient for the batch & in this case remaining quantity shall be taken from another batch A.R No along with Q1 for 100% assay basis by the following expression.

A.R No of  Atorvastatin  calcium, Assay on Dried basis (ODB) ——%w/w, LOD——-% w/w

Quantity available Atorvastatin  calcium =  Kg

Available Quantity on 100% basis  of Atorvastatin   =  Quantity available * 100*100/Assay (ODB)*(100-LOD)

calcium in Kgs(Q1)————————————— = Kgs

Further, use the following  expression to calculate the quantity of additional Atorvastatin  calcium quantity required from the next batch or Lot 

A.R No. of Atorvastatin calcium ————– Assay on Dried basis (ODB) ——%w/w LOD——-% w/w

Quantity required of Atorvastatin calcium another lot or batch at 100% basis in Kgs (Y)=Std. Quantity reqd. for the batch – Quantity for 1st  lot/batch. = ———-Kgs.

Available Quantity to be

issued against Atorvastatin   = Std. quantity (Y)*100*100

calcium (Y1)in Kgs ————– = Kgs

Assay on (ODB)*(100-LOD)

Total Quantity issued in Kgs

Note: if more than two batches are required then the calculation follows these steps.

Adjustment or statement batch size in Kgs. 

The actual quantity of Atorvastatin calcium is to be calculated on the basis of assay and water of the drug and the quantity is to be compensated with microcrystalline cellulose (Avicel PH101).

The actual quantity of Atorvastatin  calcium – Standard quantity of Atorvastatin  calcium = Kgs

Standard  qty. of microcrystalline cellulose -quantity =Kgs

General instruction for Manufacturing 

During the operation, all personnel of the manufacturing area should wear clean uniforms, caps, nose masks, and hand gloves.

Check the relative humidity, temperature, and pressure difference and record where ever necessary & should be Temp 20-25ºc  & RH 50±20%, PD -NLT 1.2 mm water.

Check the line clearance, cleanliness of the area, and equipment.

Cross-check the weight of the material before taking it up to manufacturing against the dispensing label and status label.

In case of any deviations in the process, intimate to the QA and take approval from the QA  for the same.

Whenever there is a machine breakdown during processing, rectify the machine and take again line clearance from QA before starting the operation.
