90% confidence Intervals for IVRT [Nonparametrics]

Hello all,

I need help regarding In Vitro Release Testing of semisolid dosage forms.

Here is the guidance given by the FDA in page 22 of 40.
In Vitro Release Testing - FDA

My doubt is, How the 90% confidence Intervals are calculated..?

I was tried with "Mann-Whitney Median Confidence Interval with Hodges-Lehmann estimation" using below formula.

90% CI= mn/2 ± Zcrit*(sqrt((mn*(m+n+1))/12)

Lower limits are matching with guidance but not upper limits with only one digit difference. Here is my calculation for 6Runs, 2Runs and 2Runs with one cell missing.

m               18            6            5
n               18            6            6
mn             324           36           30
mn/2           162           18           15
(mn(m+n+1))/12 999           39           30
sqrt(above)     31.60696126   6.244997998  5.477225575
zcrit            1.645        1.645        1.645
zcrit*sqrt(D14) 51.99345127  10.27302171   9.010036071

L              110            8            6
U              214           28           24

The belief that there is only one truth and
that oneself is in possession of it,
seems to me the deepest root of all
that is evil in the world.    Max Born
