LGC Standards showcases its range of products to support the pharmaceutical sector at CPhI, Paris on 5-7 October 2010

LGC Standards, Europe’s leading supplier of reference materials and products and services to support laboratory quality, is exhibiting at CPhI, Hall 6, Booth 6M78. This year, the booth will feature our broadest range of products to date.

A fully updated catalogue will be available, which includes the LGC Standards range of over 2,600 impurities for active pharmaceutical ingredients (APIs) and listings from all the major pharmacopoeias worldwide. All LGC Standards impurities are synthesised and characterised in state-of-the-art laboratories accredited to ISO guide 34 near Berlin, Germany. The constantly expanding range is published monthly at

A brand new range of primary standards for quantitative analysis will be launched in response to requests from customers. The primary standards are accompanied by a certificate containing detailed identity information and purity/assay data.

In addition, a range of secondary standards traceable to USP, EP and BP reference standards will be introduced. Secondary standards present an inexpensive alternative to the original pharmacopeial materials.

For drug development purposes (e.g. ADME/Tox, drug-drug interaction), the catalogue 'Tools for ADME/Tox – reagents, standards and model systems' is a comprehensive and easy to use reference. It includes references to the FDA Drug Development and Drug Interactions guidance for substrates, inhibitors and inducers listing relevant compounds as either preferred or acceptable. A significant number of metabolite standards are also available either labelled or unlabelled. Tools for ADME/Tox includes a collection of important model systems used in preclinical drug discovery research. These include fresh hepatocytes from a range of species, available the day after isolation and key immortalised cell lines such as Caco-2 (HTB-37™) and normal human primary cells from ATCC®.

LGC Standards has experts on hand to offer advice on choosing the most appropriate material for your needs, and the correct usage of materials. On 7 October at 11.30am, Dr Christian Zeine, Global Product Manager for the pharmaceutical sector, will deliver a lecture at Speakers’ Corner, entitled ‘FDA and EMA demands on reference standards, and how to meet them!’
