LGC Standards launches major online source of accredited reference materials

01 Aug 2011

26,000 reference materials and one intuitive search engine

LGC Standards, Europe’s leading supplier of reference materials, has today launched what will become the most comprehensive online source of reference materials available.

With an initial offering of over 26,000 products from 65 global suppliers, more reference materials will soon be added to LGC Standards’ UK webshop (, thereby providing customers with access to one of the largest single online resources of accredited reference materials. The new webshop delivers an intuitive search engine to enable customers to locate products by name, code, analyte, chemical formula, matrix or Chemical Abstracts Service number.

The webshop also provides a reference centre (including product-specific posters, case studies, articles and flyers), up-to-date industry and company news, status tracking of all active orders, delivery date confirmation and the promotion of new products. Each reference material is available with a certificate of accreditation as proof of its authenticity.

With over 100,000 reference standards currently available from LGC Standards, the webshop will in due course be available in 17 languages, while a worldwide launch is planned for the end of October 2011.
To celebrate the launch of the webshop, we are offering free delivery for all UK orders* made during the month of August 2011.

The range of reference materials available from the webshop currently relate to:

  • Phytochemicals
  • Clinical, forensics and sport
  • Analytical reference materials, standards and chromatography
  • Metals
  • Pharmaceutical standards & impurities

Dr Peter Pack, Managing Director of LGC Standards, said: “Creating what will become the single largest online resource for accredited reference standards was challenging, but we have done it. We will of course continue to develop the website by adding more products and streamlining the ordering and delivery process to ensure we meet the needs of our customers.”
