Title: Where can I buy glucose?
Post by: scientizscht on 15/11/2019 15:51:43
Hello

I need pure glucose so that I create myself various concentration glucose solutions for calibration purposes of a glucose meter.

Can anyone point me to a pure glucose product that I can use for that purpose? I need few grams of it.

Thanks!

This sort of thing would probably do the job.
The trace of vitamin C shouldn't make much difference.
You can always recrystallise it if you need a better purity
