Description

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. Pilocarpine Nitrate is a naturally occurring cholinomimetic drug, exhibiting nicotinic and muscarinic properties. It is widely used for controlling intraocular pressure in glaucoma, immediate relief of mydriasis, and to reverse mydriasis caused by cycloplegic agents.

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.

Biochem/physiol Actions

Nonselective muscarinic acetylcholine receptor agonist; used to produce an experimental model of epilepsy.

Analysis Note

These secondary standards offer multi-traceability to the USP, EP 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.
