Identification— It responds to Identification tests B, C, and D under Indigotindisulfonate Sodium.
Bacterial endotoxins 85 It contains not more than 5.0 USP Endotoxin Units per mg of indigotindisulfonate sodium.
pH 791: between 3.0 and 6.5.
Other requirements— It meets the requirements under Injections 1.
Assay— Quantitatively dilute a portion of Injection, equivalent to about 40 mg of indigotindisulfonate sodium, with dilute hydrochloric acid (1 in 100) to obtain a solution having a known concentration of about 10 µg of indigotindisulfonate sodium per mL. Proceed as directed in the Assay under Indigotindisulfonate Sodium, beginning with “Concomitantly determine the absorbances.” Calculate the quantity, in mg, of C16H8N2Na2O8S2 in each mL of the Injection taken by the formula:
4(C / V)(AU / AS)
in which C is the concentration, in µg per mL, of USP Indigotindisulfonate Sodium RS in the Standard solution; V is the volume, in mL, of Injection taken; and AU and AS are the absorbances of the solution from the Injection and the Standard solution, respectively.
Auxiliary Information— Please check for your question in the FAQs before contacting USP.
