Fluorescent Reference Materials - PCR, Point-of-care, ELISA & fluorimeter validation

Starna Scientifics’s Certified Reference Materials (CRM) for fluorescence spectroscopy have been specifically designed and developed for applications that require day-to-day validation and long term monitoring of fluorescence system responsivity.

Starna Fluorescent references are frequently used in the following types of system:
  • Spectroflurometer
  • ELISA fluorescent plate-readers
  • PCR systems
  • Point-of-care fluorescent based systems
Measurements on fluorescence based measurement systems are typically subject to a large number of instrumental variables. A given sample may give significantly different results when measured on different instruments even if they are of similar design.

The measurable signal of fluorescent analytes can be impacted by a number of chemical and physical effects, such as quenching or self-absorption of the fluorescence emission, which may lead to departures from the expected concentration/emission relationships outside of a narrow range. Additionally, many fluorescent materials are susceptible to photobleaching, such that detectable signal may noticeably fade with repeated measurement.

Therefore, to ensure confidence in results, a stable and consistent point of measurement reference should be used minimise or remove the effects of these variables.

Where applicable, specific properties of fluorescent CRM can be made tracible to NIST Standard Reference Materials in our ISO/IEC 17025 calibration laboratory.

All fluorescent CRM are manufactured in our ISO 17034 accredited Reference Material Production facility.

Flow Cells - Dissolution systems, Analysers, online applications

Flow cells are used for measuring samples with continuous flow or sipper systems where individual samples are aspirated into the cell. For example:
  • Tablet dissolution
  • Clinical chemistry systems
  • Blood analysers
  • Urine analysers
  • Flow microscopy
They are also used in sipper systems where individual samples are aspirated into the cell. Flow cells are made in a wide array of designs because each application has a different compromise of sample volume, flow pattern, pathlength and tubing requirements. We make a wide range of flow cells and have made every effort to simplify the process of selection as much as possible. If you have questions, please e-mail us and we will answer your technical questions promptly.

Rectangular Cells

Rectangular cells are used for most UV/VIS routine analysis. By far the most common type of cell, they have two windows clear and conform to international standard dimension. The 10mm pathlength size should fit most instruments that use rectangular cells. Available pathlengths are from 1mm to 100mm. Check with your instrument manual to see if you need an adaptor for longer pathlength cells.

Standard Rectangular cells are the most commonly cells used. The have two polished windows and a full interior width used in most instruments.

Fluorescent Reference Materials - PCR, Point-of-Care, ELISA and Fluorimeter Validation

Starna Scientific certified reference materials (CRM) for fluorescence spectroscopy are specifically designed and developed for applications that require daily validation and long-term monitoring of fluorescence system reactivity.

Starna fluorescence references are commonly used in the following types of systems:

- Spectrofluorescence Spectrometer
- ELISA Fluorescence Plate Reader
- PCR Systems
- Fluorescence-based point-of-care systems

Measurements with fluorescence-based measurement systems are typically subject to a large number of instrumental variables. A given sample may give significantly different results when measured with different instruments, even if they are similar in design.

The measurable signal from fluorescent analytes can be affected by a number of chemical and physical effects, such as quenching or self-absorption of fluorescence emission, which can result in deviations from expected concentration/emission relationships outside a narrow range. In addition, many fluorescent materials are susceptible to photobleaching, so the detectable signal may fade noticeably with repeated measurements.

Therefore, to ensure confidence in the results, a stable and consistent measurement point should be used as a reference to minimize or eliminate the effects of these variables.

Where applicable, specific properties of fluorescence CRMs can be traceable to NIST standard reference materials in our ISO/IEC 17025 calibration laboratory.

All fluorescence CRMs are manufactured in our ISO 17034 accredited reference material manufacturing facility.
