New 2004-05 'Pharmaceutical reference substances and impurities' catalogue.

LGC : 20 December, 2004  (Company News)
LGC Promochem's new 2004-05 edition of its Pharmaceutical reference substances and impurities catalogue has a massively expanded product range including primary pharmaceutical standards from the United States Pharmacopeia, European Pharmacopoeia and British Pharmacopoeia as well as secondary impurity standards with detailed certificates of analysis.
New products include ready-to-use reagents from Reagecon as recommended in the EP and the well known Mikromol range of 1700 impurity standards, which covers all the impurities mentioned in the EP, USP and by the FDA when requesting evidence of an impurity for official approval. In addition to the reference substances, the catalogue lists the current and up-coming versions of publications and subscriptions issued by the pharmacopoeias.

Microbiologists will be particularly pleased to see an extended range of cultures from ATCC which covers all the organisms specified in the pharmacopoeias. LGC Promochem is Europe's only officially authorised distributor of both USP reference substances and ATCC cultures.

For the first time, the new catalogue includes reference materials for physical properties measured in pharmaceutical laboratories including thermal, surface, optical and electrical properties, ion activity and viscosity from well known organisations such as the National Institute of Standards and Technology and the Institute for Reference Materials and Measurements with their range of BCR materials.

Another new addition is the range of Picograde solvents and high purity solvents for HPLC applications. Picograde solvents are rigorously tested to ensure that they meet the demanding requirements of organic trace analysis detection of organic environmental contaminants with the highest possible accuracy. High purity HPLC solvents from LGC Promochem complement the Picograde range, and products include solvents for isocratic analytical HPLC and gradient grade quality solvents. Special solvents for VOC/EOX and aromatic hydrocarbon analysis are also available.

'We have tried to produce a bible for the pharmaceutical industry,' said LGC Promochem's Claudia Ketteler who, as Business Development Manager for Pharmaceutical, Clinical and Forensic Reference Materials, is responsible for the catalogue. 'All the reference materials that the industry needs are included in this one catalogue and can be supplied from one source, LGC Promochem.' A thorough check has been carried out to ensure that the information regarding compendial articles provided is based on the 'official' pharmacopoeial lists in September 2004 and is correct at the time of print. The catalogue uses the original descriptions and spellings of the manufacturers but, in some cases, additional information has been included to make the lists more convenient to use.

As the leading reference materials supplier in Europe, LGC Promochem offers the widest range of certified pharmaceutical chemical reference substances (CRS) and pharmaceutical impurities available from a single source. They are supplied by the world's leading manufacturers and from LGC's in-house production facilities, ensuring that they meet the exacting needs of our customers. LGC Promochem's network of offices across Europe and India and experience in reference materials distribution means the company can provide faster delivery, local technical support and assistance with import requirements.
