    • Fill the relevant details related to analytical solution preparation in the respective template and logbook.
    • Affix the label on the bottle “SOLUTION FOR STABILITY STUDY” with the name of the analytical solution.
    • Examine the solution for any odd observation such as the solution has turned hazy, cloudy with extraneous matter, layer separation.
    • Report the Head QC or designee about the observation for the further
    • Head QC or Designee shall be responsible to ensure the:

    • Availability of all solution preparation and stability study procedure.
    • Proper practices are followed as per the SOP.
    • Solutions are prepared and monitored as per the designed protocol.
    • Proper labeling on the solution/reagent bottle.
    • All solution preparation records are properly maintained.
    •  Quality Assurance shall be responsible for:

    • Ensure the implementation of the system as per SOP.
    • Review and approve SOP.
    •  Site Quality Head or Designee shall be responsible for:

    • Ensure the implementation of the system as per SOP.

4.0       ABBREVIATIONS USED IN SOP FOR SOLUTION STABILITY:

    • NA: Not applicable
    • No.: Number
    • QA: Quality Assurance
    • QC: Quality Control
    • Res: Respective
    • SOP: Standard operating procedure

5.0      PROCEDURE FOR SOLUTION STABILITY:

    • The analyst shall assign the protocol number as per respective SOP for Protocol & Report Numbering and Issuance System.
    • Prepare the protocol for the respective analytical solution as per Annexures-1.
    • Prepare and standardize the volumetric solution, buffer solution, indicator solution, reagent solution, colorimetric solution as per SOP  for Preparation and handling of buffers, indicator, colorimetric solution, limit standard solution, volumetric solution, and reagents.
    • Fill all the relevant details related to analytical solution preparation in the respective template/logbooks and affix the label on the bottle “SOLUTION FOR STABILITY STUDY” with the name of the analytical solution.
    • Carry out the stability study of analytical solution(s) as per Annexure-3 but not limited to.
    • Carry out the stability study through an approved stability protocol.
    • After the preparation of the analytical solution, the analyst shall examine the solution for any odd observation such as the solution has turned hazy, cloudy, with extraneous matter, layer separation, etc.
    • Record the observation in the stability study Annexures-2 for the respective analytical solution and submit the same to section head/reviewer.
    • In case the solution has turned hazy, cloudy, with extraneous matters, layer separation or any other odd observation, the analyst shall immediately report to Head QC or designee and Head   QC or designee shall decide further action.
    • The analyst shall perform stability of solution as per procedure define in the respective protocol and record the observation/results.
    • Evaluate the observation/results filled in protocol against the acceptance criteria defined in the stability study protocol.
    • Define the use before the date of the solution based on the solution stability study data.
    • After completion of the stability, the study record shall be maintained in the register as per Annexure- 4.
    • Stability study of mobile phase & diluent shall be performed at the time of method validation.
