New Certified Reference Materials supporting the analysis of food supplements


The new CRMs:
The new CRMs (VITA-1 and VITB-1) are part of a suite of multivitamin Certified Reference Materials (CRMs) from National Research Council Canada (NRC). VITA-1 is a low-level multivitamin CRM that is certified for minerals and vitamins and VITB-1 is an elevated-level counterpart.

VITA-1 and VITb-1 CRMs

Each unit consists of a box with 20 tablets individually packaged in trilaminate foil pouches which serve as a barrier to the light and moisture. Trilaminate foil pouches should only be opened immediately prior to use. The CRM is sensitive to light, so caution should be taken to avoid any light exposure. Each tablet weighs approximately 2.57 g.

Both CRMs are intended for the calibration of procedures and the development of methods for the determination of minerals and vitamins in multivitamin materials or similar matrices. Apart from minerals and trace elements, the materials are also certified for some trace element species (Chromium picolinate, cyanocobalamanin) and many vitamins.
