The CuDAL-Excel program, based on Microsoft (MS) Excel, has been developed to calculate the United States Pharmacopeia (USP) passing probability of content uniformity and dissolution tests for both sampling plan 1 and sampling plan 2 scenarios and for both immediate release and extended release requirements. The users can obtain the passing probability by simply entering the input variables, with wide applications for process validation/verification and batch release. As a user-friendly program, CuDAL‑Excel should bring more benefits to the industry practitioners than other existing programs/tools.
