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. Niacin (Nicotinic Acid) is commonly used as a dietary supplement, and its deficiency can cause pellagra. It is involved in the synthesis of coenzymes such as NAD and NADP, which are quite essential for enzymatic reactions.
As a lipid-lowering agent, it helps in the prevention of coronary heart disease, carotid artery disease and other atherosclerotic vascular diseases.
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.
Niacin (Nicotinic Acid) may be used as a secondary pharma standard for the quantification of the analyte in pharmaceutical formulations using spectrophotometric technique and reversed-phase high-performance liquid chromatography 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.
