Sample: Indomethacin capsule contents were added to a 25mL volumetric flask. A portion of 50/50 Solvent A /Solvent B was added and it was sonicated for 10 minutes. It was then diluted to mark with the diluent and mixed. Then it was filtered with a 0.45µm Nylon Syringe Filter (MicroSolv Tech Corp.).
t0: 0.6 minutes

Note: Indomethacin is an NSAID used for its anti-inflammatory, analgesic, and antipyretic activity to treat a variety of conditions. It acts by inhibition of Prostaglandin synthesis. It is a prescription drug sold under many brand names.
