Accurate diagnosis, monitoring and treatment are cornerstones of a healthcare system and require reliable measurements. The traceability of measurement results to stated references, and the development of Reference Measurement Systems (RMS), provide mechanisms to achieve the required consistency of results. The primary standards within such an RMS are of pure substance certified reference materials. Developments in modern measurement and mass spectrometric techniques have opened up the possibility to characterize and quantify more complex large molecules such as peptides, enabling RMS to be developed for these analytes. The prohormone angiotensin I is a hypertension biomarker and was selected as a model peptide. The full mass balance approach, the peptide impurity corrected amino acid analysis, elemental analysis and quantitative nuclear magnetic resonance approaches have been investigated and optimized to compare the performance of these different methodologies for the purity mass fraction value assignment of an ANG I calibrator material.
