The Dissolution Study For Sodium Selenite Tablets Using Atomic Absorption Spectrophotometer

Abstract

The development of a meaningful dissolution procedure for drug products with limited water solubility has been a challenge to both the pharmaceutical industry and the agencies that regulate them. Natural surfactants aid in the dissolution and subsequent absorption of drugs with limited aqueous solubility. In vitro, various techniques have been used to achieve adequate dissolution of the sparingly water – soluble or water insoluble drug products such as the use of mechanical methods (i.e., increased agitation and the disintegration method) or hydro alcoholic medium or large volumes of medium. The necessity of assuring the quality of drugs , especially those with low aqueous solubility and in vivo absorption , has led to the development and evaluation of new techniques that can reduce the time and cost of analysis. This study has been examines the efficiency and accuracy of an automated dissolution system, fitted with a simple, integrated, for analysis of generic drugs. Sodium Selenite 200 μg tablets was chosen as model drugs for this study and comparison was made with a conventional analysis based on flameless atomic absorption spectrophotometer (AAS). The analytical system under study gave reproducible and accurate results. Low instrumentation cost was demonstrated which is provide satisfactory elemental drugs analysis to a standard at least as good as that achieved using AAS.
