DEVELOPMENT OF A LIVER REFERENCE MATERIAL FOR DETERMINATION OF VITAMINS

Objective



Pig liver contains nearly all vitamins in measurable amounts which makes this matrix very suitable as a potential reference material for the whole range of water and fat soluble vitamins.

The contents of the individual vitamins in the reference material will be established progressively as the individual analytical problems are solved in the related projects (Projects 400, 401, 402).

STATUS

The conditions for processing and freeze drying of raw liver have already been established in a pilot study and a preliminary batch has been produced and checked for contents of vitamins. The preparation of the main batch of liver RM will be completed by mid. 1992.
