Honeywell Research Chemicals has launched its first series of Hydranal double-certified reference materials (CRM) for Karl Fischer Titration.
The new generation of standards are produced and certified under ISO Guide 34 in addition to ISO/IEC 17025. The double accreditation means researchers can rely on compliance with the strictest regulatory requirements.
While pure water can be used as a suitable calibrator of laboratory instruments, accurate results depend on many factors such as the balance used, the volume of the burette, the Karl Fischer chemistry (titrant) and the know-how of the user. For that reason, researchers prefer the instrument to be calibrated with a CRM that allows for the handling of larger specimens.
“Since our Hydranal product line was launched more than 35 years ago, our laboratory in Seelze, Germany, has applied a high standard for production and quality control of Karl Fischer reagents and water standards,” said Soeren Hoegh, global marketing manager of Honeywell Research Chemicals.
“Our customers’ results are directly affected by the quality of the certified reference materials they use, so we have committed to continuously improving our processes to ensure that our products help them deliver the best quality research results. Attaining double-certified Standard Accredited CRM marks the latest step in that commitment.”
With increasing pressure from regulatory authorities and rising user demand for better quality measurement results, more and more laboratories are acquiring accreditation. This enables them to demonstrate their measurement performance and the traceability of their results through CRM.
The Hydranal CRM range is available to order via Research Chemicals’ newly launched e-commerce site. It includes: HYDRANAL-CRM Water Standard 10.0, HYDRANAL-CRM Water Standard 1.0 and HYDRANAL-CRM Sodium Tartrate Dihydrate.
