d-Streptamine, O-2-deoxy-2-(methylamino)--l-glucopyranosyl-(1®2)-O-5-deoxy-3-C-formyl--l-lyxofuranosyl-(1®4)-N,N¢-bis(aminoiminomethyl)-, sulfate (2:3) (salt).
Streptomycin sulfate (2:3) (salt) [3810-74-0].
» Streptomycin Sulfate has a potency equivalent to not less than 650 µg and not more than 850 µg of streptomycin (C21H39N7O12) per mg.
Packaging and storage Preserve in tight containers.
Labeling Where it is intended for use in preparing injectable dosage forms, the label states that it is sterile or must be subjected to further processing during the preparation of injectable dosage forms.
A: Dissolve 5 g of ferric chloride in 50 mL of 0.1 N hydrochloric acid. Transfer 2.5 mL of this stock solution to a 100-mL volumetric flask, dilute with 0.01 N hydrochloric acid to volume, and mix. Prepare Iron reagent at the time of use. Dissolve the specimen in water, and dilute with water to obtain a solution containing about 1 mg of streptomycin per mL. To 5 mL of this solution add 2.0 mL of 1 N sodium hydroxide, and heat in a water bath for 10 minutes. Cool in ice water for 3 minutes, then add 2.0 mL of 1.2 N hydrochloric acid, and mix. Add 5 mL of Iron reagent, and mix: a violet color is produced.
B: It responds to the tests for Sulfate 191.
pH 791: between 4.5 and 7.0, in a solution containing 200 mg of streptomycin per mL.
Loss on drying 731 Dry about 100 mg, accurately weighed, in a capillary-stoppered bottle in vacuum at a pressure not exceeding 5 mm of mercury at 60 for 3 hours: it loses not more than 5.0% of its weight.
Other requirements Where the label states that Streptomycin Sulfate is sterile, it meets the requirements for Sterility Tests and Bacterial endotoxins under Streptomycin for Injection. Where the label states that Streptomycin Sulfate must be subjected to further processing during the preparation of injectable dosage forms, it meets the requirements for Bacterial endotoxins under Streptomycin for Injection.
Mobile phase Use 70 mM sodium hydroxide. During use, store in a plastic bottle flushed with a blanket of helium above the liquid surface. Make adjustments if necessary (see System Suitability under Chromatography 621).
Standard preparation Dissolve an accurately weighed quantity of USP Streptomycin Sulfate RS in water, and quantitatively dilute with water to obtain a solution having a known concentration of about 0.03 mg per mL. Sonicate for 1 minute, and mix.
Assay preparation Transfer about 30 mg of Streptomycin Sulfate, accurately weighed, to a 100-mL volumetric flask, dilute with water to volume, sonicate for 1 minute, and mix. Transfer 10.0 mL of this solution to a second 100-mL volumetric flask, dilute with water to volume, and mix.
System suitability solution Heat about 10 mL of the Standard preparation at 75 for 1 hour. Allow to cool.
Chromatographic system (see Chromatography 621) The liquid chromatograph is equipped with an electrochemical detector, a gold working electrode, a pH silversilver chloride reference electrode, a 4-mm × 5-cm guard column that contains packing L46, and a 4-mm × 25-cm analytical column that contains packing L46. The electrochemical detector is used in the integrated amperometric mode with a range of 300 nC, an output of 1 V full scale, and a rise time of 0.5 second, positive polarity. The potential is programmed as follows.
Procedure Separately inject equal volumes (about 20 µL) of the Standard preparation and the Assay preparation into the chromatograph, record the chromatograms, and measure the areas for the major peaks. Calculate the quantity, in µg, of streptomycin (C21H39N7O12) in each mg of Streptomycin Sulfate taken by the formula:
1000(CP/WU)(rU / rS)in which C is the concentration, in mg per mL, of USP Streptomycin Sulfate RS in the Standard preparation; P is the designated streptomycin content, in µg per mg, of streptomycin (C21H39N7O12) in USP Streptomycin Sulfate RS; WU is the weight, in mg, of Streptomycin Sulfate taken to prepare the Assay preparation; and rU and rS are the streptomycin peak areas obtained from the Assay preparation and the Standard preparation, respectively.
