PREPARATION OF DEARATED WATER :
Filter the medium through 0.45 micron membrane filter and sonicate for fifteen minutes.
STANDARD PREPARATION :
Take 10 mg prednisone (previously dried at 105°C for 3 hours) in to 200 ml volumetric flask and make up the volume with dissolution medium. Dilute 10 ml of this solution to 25 ml with dissolution medium.
SAMPLE PREPARATION :
Place one tablet into each of the six bowls and operate the apparatus for 30 minutes. Draw 20 ml of sample from each bowl after 30 minutes, filter with 0.45 micron membrane filter. Discard first few ml of filtrate.
PROCEDURE :
Measure the absorbance of standard preparation and test preparation at 242 nm.
