Certification of Standard Reference Material 3389 Ginsenoside Calibration Solution



Walter B. Wilson, Lane C. Sander, Benjamin J. Place, James H. Yen


Standard Reference Material (SRM) 3389 is intended as a calibration solution for use for the determination of ginsenosides in natural matrix samples. A unit of SRM 3389 consists of two different ampule solutions: (1) four ampules of a six-component mixture of ginsenoside Rb1, Rb2, Rc, Rd, Re, and Rg1 and (2) one ampule of a single component ginsenoside Rf. This publication documents the production, analytical methods, and statistical evaluations involved in production of this SRM.
