Medical - Medical: Pharmaceuticals / Validation report (GMP/SOP)
German term or phrase: Ansätze
From a validation report (manufacturing)
Chapter: Ansatzherstellung
Previous sentence: Der Wirkstoff xxx wurde mit Hilfe eines Trichters in einen Erlenmeyerkolben eingewogen, im Erlenmeyerkolben mit WFI unter Umschwenken angelöst und quantitativ in den Ansatzbehälter überführt.
Contextual sentence: Die Ansätze wurden gemäß Vorgabe solange gerührt, bis Wirk- und Hilfsstoffe vollständig gelöst waren.
Following sentence: Zur Prüfung erfolgten eine visuelle Kontrolle und die Kontrolle von pH-Werten und Osmolalität.

How does one translate Ansätze in this context? I can't imagine batches or approaches is correct, but perhaps those more experienced can offer some good insights! A previous entry suggested "preparation", but is this singular or plural?
