General description

Pharmaceutical secondary standards for application in quality control, provide pharma laboratories and manufacturers with a convenient and cost-effective alternative to the preparation of in-house working standards.
Carvedilol is a lipophilic β1- and β2-adrenoreceptor antagonist that exhibits antioxidant and antiproliferative properties. It is prescribed as a medicine for the treatment of hypertension, stable angina pectoris, post myocardial infarction with left ventricular dysfunction and all degrees of symptomatic chronic heart failure.


These Secondary Standards are qualified as Certified Reference Materials. These are suitable for use in several analytical applications including but not limited to pharma release testing, pharma method development for qualitative and quantitative analyses, food and beverage quality control testing, and other calibration requirements.
Carvedilol may be used as a pharmaceutical reference standard for the determination of the analyte in pharmaceutical formulations and serum samples by various chromatography techniques.

Biochem/physiol Actions

Cavedilol is a non-selective β-adrenergic blocker with α1 blocking activity. Carvedilol is used specifically for the treatment of heart failure and high blood pressure. It has been shown to improve left ventricular ejection fraction and may reduce mortality.


This Certified Reference Material (CRM) is produced and certified in accordance with ISO 17034 and ISO/IEC 17025. All information regarding the use of this CRM can be found on the certificate of analysis.

Analysis Note

These secondary standards offer multi-traceability to the USP, EP (PhEur) and BP primary standards, where they are available.
