This study was performed at the Upjohn Company in the division of Chemical and Biological Control. Control's purpose is to see that Upjohn products maintain the specified expectations and remain within the regulations found in the manual of the United States Pharmacopeia. To do this, it is necessary to conduct assays for the determination of the contents of their products. The standards in the Pharmacopeia determine how the assay will be run. These assay techniques vary from product to product. The purpose of this study is not, in actuality, a study of the assay on how it operates, but a study of the time required to conduct the assay. The importance of this time study lies in the fact that there is now compiled data at Upjohn concerning the time allotted to conduct the assays.
