Packaging and storage Preserve in Containers for Sterile Solids as described under Injections 1.
Constituted solution At the time of use, it meets the requirements for Constituted Solutions under Injections 1.
Identification The retention time of the major peak for nafcillin in the chromatogram of the Assay preparation corresponds to that in the chromatogram of the Standard preparation, as obtained in the Assay.
Bacterial endotoxins 85 It contains not more than 0.13 USP Endotoxin Unit per mg of nafcillin.
Sterility 71 It meets the requirements when tested as directed for Membrane Filtration under Test for Sterility of the Product to be Examined.
pH 791: between 6.0 and 8.5, in the solution constituted as directed in the labeling.
Water, Method I 921: between 3.5% and 5.3%.
Particulate matter 788: meets the requirements for small-volume injections.
Other requirements It meets the requirements for Uniformity of Dosage Units 905 and Labeling under Injections 1.
Acetic acid solution, 0.05 M Sodium acetate, Diluent, Mobile phase, Standard preparation, Resolution solution, and Chromatographic system Proceed as directed in the Assay under Nafcillin Sodium.
Assay preparation 1 (where it is represented as being in a single-dose container)Constitute Nafcillin for Injection in a volume of water, accurately measured, corresponding to the volume of solvent specified in the labeling. Withdraw all of the withdrawable contents, using a suitable hypodermic needle and syringe, and dilute quantitatively with Diluent to obtain a solution having a concentration of about 0.4 mg of nafcillin (C21H22N2O5S) per mL.
Assay preparation 2 (where the label states the quantity of nafcillin in a given volume of constituted solution)Constitute Nafcillin for Injection in a volume of water, accurately measured, corresponding to the volume of solvent specified in the labeling. Dilute an accurately measured volume of the constituted solution quantitatively with Diluent to obtain a solution having a concentration of about 0.4 mg of nafcillin (C21H22N2O5S) per mL.
Procedure Proceed as directed for Procedure in the Assay under Nafcillin Sodium. Calculate the quantity, in mg, of nafcillin (C21H22N2O5S) in the portion of constituted Nafcillin for Injection taken by the formula:
(C / 1000)(L / D)(rU / rS)in which L is the labeled quantity, in mg, of nafcillin in the portion of Nafcillin for Injection taken; D is the concentration, in mg per mL, of nafcillin in Assay preparation 1 or Assay preparation 2, as appropriate, based on the volume of constituted Nafcillin for Injection taken and the extent of dilution; and the other terms are as defined therein.
Perform the above procedure on 10 containers where it is represented as being in a single-dose container and, if necessary, on 10 containers where the label states the quantity of nafcillin in a given volume of constituted solution. Use the individual results to determine the Uniformity of dosage units and the average thereof as the Assay value.
