CDC's opioid reference material programs
The Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC) has contracted Cerilliant to manufacture and distribute an Opioid Certified Reference Material Kit (Opioid CRM Kit) and Opioid Polysubstance Mix Kit (OPM Kit). These kits contain over 40 solution-based certified reference materials that support laboratory detection of emerging opioids and related substances.
Formerly known as the Analytical Reference Materials Division of Radian International, the company began producing chemical reference standards in 1980 to address the needs of the emerging environmental testing industry and was the first to produce 13C labeled chlorinated dioxins and furans in cooperation with Cambridge Isotope Laboratories. Cerilliant was also the first to offer isotope-labeled drugs-of-abuse reference standards to the forensic drug testing industry and pioneered DEA exempt preparations of controlled substances in solution.
In 2000, Radian's parent, URS Corporation, made the decision to divest the division. Cerilliant was formed following the purchase of the division by private investors.
Since its formation in August 2000, Cerilliant has steadily grown from 23 to over 85 employees and serves more than 2000 active customers, including federal and state governmental organizations and laboratories, private laboratories, hospitals, universities, pharmaceutical companies, contract research organizations, and analytical instrument, medical device and test kit manufacturers. Cerilliant's products are distributed throughout the entire world.
In December, 2010, Cerilliant was acquired by Sigma-Aldrich Corporation. Headquartered in St. Louis, Missouri, Sigma-Aldrich is a leading life science and high technology company specializing in chemical and biochemical products and kits used in scientific research, biotechnology, pharmaceutical development, the diagnosis of disease, and as key components in high technology manufacturing.

Cerilliant's operations are located in Round Rock, Texas, just north of Austin, in a light industrial park. Its current operations are housed in approximately 44,000 square feet of leased space, of which approximately 60% is dedicated to its production operations. The remainder of the space is dedicated to sales and administrative functions.
The production area includes segregated suites for organic synthesis work (bench scale to multi-kg); isolation suites for synthesis of toxic, hazardous, or light sensitive materials; reference standard manufacturing; ampoule filling, powder filling, packaging; analytical testing; shipping; receiving; and material storage areas for bulk and finished products.
Cerilliant's synthesis suites are negative pressure, controlled environments with sophisticated air handling and ventilation systems. Isolation suites and controlled environment chambers are available for the production and handling of toxic and sensitive materials.
The facility is controlled access and is monitored through the use of video surveillance and various electronic alarm components as well as third party monitoring and after-hours security. Critical systems are supported by an uninterrupted power supply and a back-up generator.
