General description

Certipur® certified secondary standard reference buffers are used to precisely calibrate and monitor pH measurement instruments and buffer solutions. They are quality controlled and qualified in our ISO/IEC 17025 and ISO 17034 accredited calibration laboratories against certified primary standard reference materials (SRM) in compliance with DIN 19266, IUPAC, NIST, Ph. Eur and USP. Certipur® reference materials offer maximum accuracy, reliability and convenience and help avoid costly repeat analyses.

Application

Potassium tetraoxalate dihydrate [pH (S) = 1.67₉ (25 °C)] is a certified secondary standard reference material used as a calibration buffer standard for pH instruments or pH electrodes.

Features and Benefits

  • The product is delivered with a comprehensive, batch-specific Certificate of Analysis showing the relevant data for the quality management system.
  • The pH value of this Certipur® buffer solution is qualified using differential potentiometry with two platinum hydrogen electrodes against NIST & PTB primary reference materials [pH (S) = 1.679 (25 °C)].
  • This buffer standard has a guaranteed shelf life of 4 years.
  • Potassium tetraoxalate dihydrate buffer is a Certified Reference Material (CRM) offered in neat format. Solution of this standard is prepared in-house following instructions in European Pharmacopoeia (Ph. Eur. 2.2.3).
  • Intended for extremely precise calibration, qualification and monitoring of pH instruments and routine assessment of their performance.
