Italian term or phrase: soluzione tampone R
I am translating a very old summary of product characteristics.

The text frequently refers to substances and has the letter "R" after them.
Initially, since quite a number of the substances are organic compounds, I thought this might refer to the specific stereoisomer. However, there are also examples of this being added after clearly non-stereoisomeric compounds, and in some cases, not even organic compounds.
Any idea what this might mean?
Reagent, as in reagent grade (although some of the chemicals sould probably be analytical grade or better).

All suggestions welcome.

"R" stands for "Risk phrases" (risk factors). See http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/List_of_R-phrases

Then I guess that "R" stands just for "reagent", as you said.
