General description

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.
Retinyl palmitate belongs to a category of compounds called retinoids, which are chemically similar to vitamin A. It exhibits a beneficial effect on vision, skin and immune function, inhibits cell proliferation and prevents cancer. It is an important dietary as well as a therapeutic compound.

Application

Retinyl palmitate may be used as a pharmaceutical reference standard for the determination of the analyte in pharmaceutical formulations by chromatographic and spectrophotometric 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.

Biochem/physiol Actions

Review: Vitamin A metabolism.

Analysis Note

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

Other Notes

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.
