√          signifies that this characteristic is normally evaluated.

(1)       In cases where reproducibility has been performed, intermediate precision is not needed.

(2)       Lack of specificity of one analytical procedure could be compensated by other supporting analytical procedure(s).

(3)       May be needed in some cases.

 

 

10.3 TYPICAL VALIDATION CHARACTERISTICS FOR MICROBIOLOGICAL TESTS:

Table XI:


Microbiological tests

Validation characteristics

Bacterial Endotoxin Test

  • Test for Confirmation of Labelled Lysate Sensitivity(Verification of criteria for standard curve)
  • Test for Interfering Factors (Inhibition/ Enhancement tests)

Sterility Test

Validation (Bacteriostasis or Fungistasis) Test

  • Quantity of Sample/ Volume of Sample
  • Membrane filtration/ Direct inoculation
  • Open System or Closed System (if uses Membrane filtration method)
  • Volume of rinsing fluid

Microbial Contamination Test

  • Validation of total viable aerobic count (suitability of the counting method in the presence of product) 1 batch
  • Validation of test for specified microorganism (suitability of the test method) 1 batch

Microbiological Assay of Antibiotics

Linearity of the dose response relationship
