General description

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. Alcohol is a common organic solvent that is widely used in chemistry, biochemistry, and molecular biology. It is also utilized in pharmaceutical and perfume manufacture. Due to its occurrence in alcoholic beverages, it is also widely used in in vivo studies on alcohol-related pathology.

Application

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.
