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
Vanillin Melting Point Standard also called Vanillin is an aromatic compound, and is used for flavoring foods. It is has biogenetic relationship to phenylpropanoid pathway. It is mostly used in foods, beverages, perfumes and pharmaceuticals.

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.
It has been used as reference standard in calibrating hot stage; during thermomicroscopic investigation performed with optical polarizing microscope; usually equipped with a hot stage and temperature controller.

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.
