The 17th edition of the JP (Japanese Pharmacopoeia) came into effect on April 1, 2016. Purified sodium hyaluronate ophthalmic solution was added to the 17th edition of the JP. According to the JP method, it is necessary for the system suitability to satisfy resolution (Rs) of Hyaluronic acid /ε-Aminocaproic acid of ≥ 5, and for the system repeatability to satisfy relative standard deviation (RSD) of ≤ 2.0% (repeated six times). It was confirmed that the all conditions were satisfied when OHpak SB-802.5 HQ was used for analysis.
