Nimodipine is a well-known calcium antagonist and is a moderate cerebral vasodilator, in addition to being an inhibitor of cerebrovascular reactivity. It is suggested to be cytoprotective by causing a decrease in the influx of calcium into the nerve cells. It is accepted for use in the management of delayed ischaemic dysfunction and is commonlly used in the studies of brain function impairment and dementia in old age.
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.
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.
Nimodipine can be used as a pharmaceutical reference standard in the determination of the analyte in pharmaceutical formulations and combined dosage forms by various electrochemical and spectrophotometric techniques.
These secondary standards offer multi-traceability to the USP, EP (PhEur) and BP primary standards, where they are available.
This Certified Reference Material (CRM) is produced and certified in accordance with ISO 17034 and ISO/IEC 17025. All information regarding the use of this CRM can be found on the certificate of analysis.
