The ready-to-use, liquid or lyophilized Duotrol® quality control sera are available in different clinically relevant concentrations and package sizes. BIOMED multi-analyte quality controls cover a range of integrated analyser systems and methods.
According to the DIN standard ISO 15189, a suitable quality control is characterized by a reaction in the test system that is as similar as possible to that of the patient samples. BIOMED Duotrol® quality controls meet this requirement perfectly, as they are manufactured on the basis of human matrix. If possible, the concentrations of the control materials should also be in the range of clinical decision values. BIOMED control sera are available in two or even three concentration ranges covering the physiological and pathological range of the patient samples. In addition, the control material is tested and monitored at regular, short intervals with regard to its stability and target values by means of target value re-determinations in order to minimize the risk of damage to a patient due to incorrect results caused by product aging. BIOMED’s quality controls are regularly used in ring trials (interlab proficiency tests) conducted by the Reference Institute for Bioanalytics (RfB) and Instand e. V.
