Calibration Standard

Order No.: 1003/B
5-Hydroxyindoleacetic Acid (5-HIAA), Homovanillic Acid (HVA), Vanillylmandelic Acid (VMA)
VMA, HVA, 5-HIAA in Urine - HPLC

Calibration Standard for the analysis of VMA, HVA, 5-HIAA in urine, primary standard solution, lyophilised

This aqueous calibration standard (order no. 1003/B) from Chromsystems is injected directly into the HPLC system without sample preparation. While following the instructions the calibrator should be measured in the same manner as a patient specimen.

This aqueous calibrator is manufactured without using any human matrices.

An alternative is the lyophilised calibrator (order no. 1009), which is based on human urine and should be used according to the instruction manual.

Storage conditions

Stored at +2 to +8 °C unopened calibration standards are stable until the expiry date which is stated on the vial labels.

The reconstituted calibration standard should be stored tightly capped at +2 to +8 °C. The calibrator reconstituted with HCl should be prepared freshly each day because 5-HIAA is unstable at low pH value. Alternatively, the calibrator can be reconstituted with Elution Buffer (+ Finisher). Then the calibrator can be stored up to 5 days at +2 to +8 °C. For specific information about the detailed procedure and stability please refer to the instruction manual.
