ISLAB Benefits from LGC Standards’ Ready-to-Use LoGiCal® Solutions

Reference materials are both reasonably priced and very good quality.

LGC Standards’ LoGiCal reference solutions are proving beneficial to the Eastern Finland Laboratory Centre Joint Authority Enterprise (ISLAB) laboratory at Kuopio University Hospital.

ISLAB performs around eight million analyses annually, and the Kuopio laboratory is the largest in its network of hospital and healthcare centre laboratories.

The laboratory relies on high quality reference materials for the analysis of patient samples, as Assistant Chief Chemist Dr Toivo Halonen explained: “Accurate results are very important to us. We wanted to try ready-to-use solutions of reference materials and we evaluated LGC Standards’ LoGiCal product range for antidepressants and antipsychotic drugs and their metabolites to use for our chromatographic analyses.”

“We often perform HPLC analyses, comparing peak spectra to our own database, and need to prepare solutions of our reference materials. As it can be difficult to accurately weigh just a few milligrams of a drug, being able to buy mg/ml solutions of LoGiCal reference materials in methanol is a real benefit to us. We save time and use less compound; it is so much easier. We have found ordering from LGC Standards easy, and the reference materials are both reasonably priced and very good quality.”
