Dextrose belongs to the class of sugars, and is a preferred source of carbohydrate in parenteral nutrition regimens. It is widely used in solutions to adjust tonicity, as a sweetening agent, wet granulation diluent/binder, direct-compression tablet diluent/binder, etc. It is considered only for short term clinical use, since it is deficient in electrolytes.
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. Dextrose has been used as a standard in the determination of additives like glucose in beverages using high performance liquid chromatography (HPLC). It may also be used as a pharmaceutical reference standard for the quantification of the analyte in pharmaceutical formulations using spectrophotometric technique.
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.
