Pirfenidone 267 mg Tablet Testing with UV Method is a common method used to determine the presence and concentration of Pirfenidone in the tablet. The UV method relies on the absorption of light by the active ingredient, Pirfenidone, at a specific wavelength. SOP for Pirfenidone 267 mg tablet Tablet Testing with UV Method testing is done as per the SOP for Pirfenidone 267 mg Tablet Testing with UV Method.
In addition to the UV method, other tests like physical tests (appearance, weight variation, disintegration, and hardness), and chemical tests (pH, assay, and impurities) are also performed to ensure the quality of the tablets.
Overall, Pirfenidone 267 mg Tablet Testing with UV Method is an important part of quality control in the pharmaceutical industry to ensure that the tablets are safe, effective, and meet the required standards.

The spectrum of the sample preparation corresponds to spectrum of the standard preparation as obtained in the assay.
Assay: (Limit: 90%-110%)Compression Weight of Powder/Tablet: 340 mg /tablet
Take 66.7 mg of Pirfenidone WS dissolved in water and make up the volume to 100mL with water. Shake, and sonicate for 5 minutes to facilitate dissolution
Take 2 mL from standard stock solution and make up the volume to 50 mL with water
Take weight of grinded powder equivalent to 133.5mg of Pirfenidone and dissolved in water and make up the volume to 200mL with water. Sonicate for 5 minutes, shake by mechanical mean for 10 minutes to disperse and allow any insoluble matter to settle.
Pass a portion of the sample stock solution through a suitable filter of 0.45um pore size.
Transfer the 2 mL of filtrate to a 50mL volumetric flask make up volume with water. Take reading at UV spectrophotometer at 312 nm using water as blank.

The amount of drug dissolve in solution for each tablet is not less Than 80% of the amount stated on the label for Pirfenidone at 30 minutes.
Uniformity of Dosage Units: (By Weight Variation)
Weigh 20 tablets individually and calculate the average weight as:
Average weight = (Weight Of 20 Tablets)/20
Weigh all these tablets individually and mark among these weights maximum (WMax) & minimum (WMin) weight tablets. Calculate the maximum and minimum variation in percent as:
Maximum% age variation =((WMax) – (WAvg.))/WAvg×100
Minimum % age variation ((WMin) – (WAvg.))/WAvg×100
Hardness Test & Dimensions:
Perform the hardness test on 10 tablets and take the average. Power on the instrument and regulate zero adjustment and preset the ‘’HARDNESS’’ and “Thickness” mode. Place the tablet on the test plate, begin testing and read the hardness thickness and diameter. Clean the shattered tablet and print out test results, perform the test on 10 tablets and take the average.
For tablets with a unit mass equal to or less than 650 mg, take a sample of whole tablets corresponding to 6.5 g. For tablets with a unit mass of more than 650 mg, take a sample of 10 whole tablets. The tablets should be carefully dedusted prior to testing. Accurately weigh the tablet sample, and place the tablets in the drum. Rotate the drum 100 times, and remove the tablets. Remove any loose dust from the tablets as before, and accurately weigh. Generally, the test is run once. If obviously cracked, cleaved, or broken tablets are present in the tablet sample after tumbling, the sample fails the test. If the results are doubtful or if the weight loss is greater than the targeted value, the test should be repeated twice and the mean of the three tests determined. A maximum mean weight loss from the three samples of not more than 1.0% is considered acceptable for most products.
% FRIABILITY= W1-W2/W1 x 100
Place the beaker filled with water into the beaker stand inside the bath and. Switch on the instrument, set the temperature at 37ºC± 2º C and wait till the temperature of the beaker reaches to the 37ºC± 2º C. Engage the basket on basket hook put the tablets in 6 tubes individually and place the discs then start the oscillations and timer. Note the disintegration time of all the six tablets.
Note the Disintegration time of 1st tablet to the last tablet.
Disintegration Time: NMT 15 minutes at 370C ± 20C
Acceptance criteria of disintegration for tablets:
If 1 or 2 tablets fail to disintegrate completely repeat the test on 12 additional tablets, not less than 16 of the totals of 18 tablets tested disintegrate completely.
Take 06 blisters of tablet 03 filled and 03 empty. Dip these blisters in the bowl of leak test apparatus containing colored water. Create vacuum 250 mmHg and hold for one minute. Release vacuum and check the penetration of water inside the blisters. All blisters should be free of water.
