Round Robin Test Pharmaceutical Glycerol 2018
Registrations for the international round robin test for pharmaceutical glycerol organized by Association Quality Management Biodiesel (AGQM) will be accepted until 12 January 2018.
The round robin test offers the opportunity to perform an external independent quality assurance for analytics of pharmaceutical glycerol. Company laboratories as well as commercial service laboratories can validate their own measuring performance and verify the used methods. In the round robin test methods from the European Pharmacopeia as well as selected standard procedures are requested.
As association of the leading companies of the German biodiesel industry, AGQM (Association Quality Management Biodiesel) predominantly deals with all issues concerning the quality management of biodiesel. Since 1999 AGQM performs round robin tests for biodiesel analytics. Now they offer their third round robin test for pharmaceutical glycerol which is an important by-product of the biodiesel production. Glycerol has a lot of possible applications in the industry. In the past, it was primarily used in the fields of cosmetics and technology. Nowadays it is used more and more as high-quality pharmaceutical glycerol (purity >99.5%) which is gained by refining raw glycerol.
