Pharmaceutical secondary standards for application in quality control, provide pharma laboratories and manufacturers with a convenient and cost-effective alternative to the preparation of in-house working standards. Amlodipine besylate is a calcium channel blocker, which inhibits the trans membrane influx of calcium ions into vascular smooth muscles and cardiac muscle. It belongs to the dihydropyridine family. It is used in combination with atorvastatin calcium to treat vasospastic angina, chronic stable angina, hypertension, in elevated serum triglyceride levels, primary dysbetalipoproteinemia.
Amlodipine besylate may be used as a pharmaceutical reference standard for the quantification of the analyte in pharmaceutical formulations using different chromatography techniques and spectrophotometric technique.
These Secondary Standards are qualified as Certified Reference Materials. These are suitable for use in several analytical applications including but not limited to pharma release testing, pharma method development for qualitative and quantitative analyses, food and beverage quality control testing, and other calibration requirements.
Amlodipine is an L-type calcium channel blocker. Amlodipine belongs to a class of cardiovascular drugs, which act at the voltage gated calcium channel of the CaV1, or L-type, class. Amlodipine also has antihypertensive and antianginal effects. Its activity resides mainly in the (-)-isomer. Amlodipine inhibits growth of human epidermoid carcinoma A431 cells and has antireproductive effects in male rats.
These secondary standards offer multi-traceability to the USP, EP (PhEur) and BP primary standards, where they are available.
