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. Vancomycin hydrochloride is a glycopeptide antibiotic, effective for the treatment of endocarditis caused by Gram-positive bacteria. It is used to inhibit the synthesis of bacterial cell wall and prevents the synthesis of peptidoglycan by binding tightly to peptides containing D-alanyl-D-alanine at the free carboxyl end. It is isolated from both Streotomyces orientalis and Nocardia lurida.


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.

Vancomycin hydrochloride may be used as a pharmaceutical reference standard for the determination of the analyte in pharmaceutical formulations, pure form and injections preparations using high-performance liquid chromatography technique and spectrophotometric technique.

Analysis Note

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