Standards  & Reference Materials


Sigma Aldrich and Merck Millipore offers a wide range of certified reference materials. In instrumental analysis, reference materials are essential for monitoring the accuracy and precision of analytical measurements, especially in terms of instrumental qualification and calibration. Our portfolio of over 20,000 products includes standards for environmental, petrochemical, pharmaceutical, clinical diagnostic and toxicology, forensic, food and beverage, GMO standards, cosmetic, veterinary and much more, as well as OEM and custom products and services. All standards manufacturing sites are at a minimum double accredited to ISO/IEC 17025, ISO Guide 34 and ISO 17034, which is the highest achievable quality level for reference material producers.

Merck offers a range of first-class reference materials for analytical methods under the trade name Certipur®, all of which are traceable to international standards. Certipur® ICP standards are directly traceable to primary standards from NIST. An extensive, batch-specific Certificate of Analysis enclosed in each package provides exact data on the content including uncertainty budget, trace element impurities, composition, traceability, date of release and minimum shelf life.
Certipur® multi-element standards from Merck for inductively coupled plasma spectroscopy (ICP) are the perfect choice for your most demanding analysis applications. Our portfolio of multi-element standards comprises various ICP calibration standards with different numbers of elements, standards for ICP / MS calibration and plasma setup, a standard for graphite furnace AAS, as well as wavelength calibration standards.
Certipur® ICP multi-element standards are traceable to standard reference materials from NIST.

With Cerilliant, RTC, Supelco, and Certipur, Sigma-Aldrich and Merck Millipore offers three in-house manufactured high-quality CRM brands all produced under ISO/IEC 17025 and ISO Guide 34 double accreditation. In addition, they distribute certified reference materials from internationally recognized CRM producers such as IRMM, Paragon Scientific or Whitehouse Scientific.
