Descripción general

Certified pharmaceutical secondary standards for application in quality control provide pharma laboratories and manufacturers with a convenient and cost-effective alternative to pharmacopeia primary standards. Caffeine is an N-methyl derivative of xanthine and is involved in gastric acid secretion, diuresis, and stimulation of the central nervous system.

Aplicación

Caffeine may be used as a pharmaceutical reference standard for the determination of the analyte in pharmaceutical formulations, blood plasma, food, drinks, and herbal products by chromatography techniques.
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.

Acciones bioquímicas o fisiológicas

A central nervous system stimulant believed to act through adenosine receptors and monoamine neurotransmitters. It is an adenosine receptor antagonist and adenosine 3′,5′-cyclic monophosphate (cAMP) phosphodiesterase inhibitor. Thus, levels of cAMP increase in cells following treatment with caffeine. It has been reported to affect cellular calcium levels, releasing calcium from intracellular stores. It overrides the cell cycle effects of various chemicals such as protease inhibitors, preventing apoptosis; and it has been shown to inhibit cellular DNA repair mechanisms.

Nota de análisis

These secondary standards offer multi-traceability to the USP, EP (PhEur) and BP primary standards, where they are available.
