  • New Psychoactive Substances, Edition 6

    New Psychoactive Substances, Edition 6

    In 2017, 51 new compounds were reported to the EMCDDA for the first time, bringing the total number of substances monitored to more than 670. Following a high of 101 substances notified in 2014, the number has decreased. Whilst this is a positive trend, the concerning development in the market has been the significant increase in the availability of new synthetic opioids. A total of 38 have been reported with highly potent fentanils (n=28) dominating. 


    Chiron work closely with clinical and forensic institutions to proactively meet demand for NPS reference materials. Edition 6 of our NPS catalogue showcases our impressive range of available standards in this field. We now also provide mixes of NPS as well as custom made solutions.

  • Reference Materials for Water Analysis

    Reference Materials for Water Analysis

    Access to clean and safe water is essential for our global community. Less than 1% of the planet’s water is usable as drinking water, yet there is increasing demand due to population growth.  Sources for fresh water are ground and surface waters.

    Our drinking water needs to be free from harmful pollutants to ensure public health. Therefore, it ishighly regulated in the industrialised world. Public water suppliers must regularly demonstrate that their water meets certain standards to ensure public trust. Drinking water is usually analysed for primary (e.g. toxic substances from various sources) and secondary contaminants (e.g. taste, smell).

    Not only drinking water needs to be monitored. Controlling municipal wastewater treatment plants as well as industrial wastewater ensures quality and sustainability of our ground water. This industry, as well as agricultural industry all over the world is dependent on reliable water supply.

    Chiron offers a large variety of organic reference materials for water analysis, including pharmaceuticals and persistent organic pollutants (POPs).

  • Pesticide Reference Material, Edition 3

    Pesticide Reference Material, Edition 3

    Pesticides are chemical agents used for controlling pests such as insects, diseases or weeds. They are often classified according to their target, and terms such as herbicides, insecticides and fungicides are used synonymously with pesticide. Pesticides are also classified according to chemical class such as organochlorines, organophosphates, and carbonates. The most common application of these chemicals is for crop protection. Despite their protective attributes, pesticides are potentially
    toxic to humans and to other exposed creatures.

  • Flame Retardant Reference Materials, Edition 3

    Flame Retardant Reference Materials, Edition 3

    Fire retardants, such as polybrominated diphenyl ethers (PBDEs), are abundant in modern society - from clothing and carpets to couches and computers - they are added to a wide range of every day products in an attempt to reduce flammability or delay combustion. The name implies that they convey safety, but to the contrary they have been associated with numerous adverse and bio-accumulative health effects, including endocrine disruption, infertility, birth defects, lowered IQs, behavioral problems, and cancers.

  • Petroleum Reference Standards

    Petroleum Reference Standards

    • Chiron was established in 1983 by Dr. Jon Eigill Johansen in Trondheim, Norway and started with the development and production of biomarkers for use in the search for oil in the North Sea. Chiron has therefore been involved in the preparation of steroid and triterpanoid (hopane) reference materials used in the petroleum industry for over 30 years, and possess a unique experience in this field. These compounds are found in petroleum and sediments. Hopanes are in fact the second largest group of natural products on earth, surpassed only by cellulose. This type of compound changes its chemical structure over time and maturation. They have traditionally been used in petroleum exploration, but in recent years have been increasingly used for forensic analysis, for example in the investigation of oil spills. Chiron works with major oil companies, institutions, private laboratories, universities and hospitals in this area, and is currently the only producer of a large range of oil exploration reference materials.

  • High quality Standards for Food Safety

    High quality Standards for Food Safety

    In recent years, there has been increasing interest in 3-MCPD fatty acid esters in food analysis. These esters are formed during the production and heating of oils and fats. They are considered harmful at high levels of consumption.
    3-MCPD is a known carcinogen found as a heat-induced contaminant in many different types of fat-containing foodstuffs. The European Food Safety Authority (EFSA) has defined a limit of 2μg/kg body weight as a tolerable daily intake (TDI).
