Verichem Laboratories is offering clinical laboratorians a comprehensive range of liquid stable and ready-to-use biosynthetic clinical reference materials designed for use with urine chemistries.
Expressly designed for system calibration and calibration verification testing procedures, the materials feature full system compatibility on a wide variety of clinical testing platforms including those from Abbott, Beckman Coulter, Roche, Siemens, among many others. The materials are fashioned to assist laboratorians with CLIA compliance, while supporting overall system quality control within the clinical laboratory.
Their availability is aimed to address the needs of a wide variety of laboratory professionals, including those engaged with routine diagnostic testing, those performing clinical research applications, and in the development, manufacturing, and support of in-vitro diagnostic (IVD) products.
All of Verichem’s urine chemistry clinical reference materials incorporate a unique bio-synthetic matrix which allows for complete urine-like reactivity, as the materials are intended to be treated as actual patient specimens. Their innovative matrix formulation and set point designs, with equidistant target concentrations, meets the current CLIA requirements for calibration verification materials used for the determination of a clinical system’s accuracy, sensitivity, linearity, and reportable range.
Plus, each of the concentration levels for the analytes are validated using available Standard Reference Materials from the National Institute of Standards and Technology (NIST), when applicable, and are shipped with a lot-specific Certificate of Analysis indicating traceability and actual test data. This multi-level offering of clinical reference materials for urine chemistries includes the analytes albumin, calcium, chloride, creatinine, magnesium, microprotein, phosphorus, potassium, sodium, total protein, urea nitrogen and uric acid.
In addition, all of the products feature shelf-life stability claims of 17-months or more along with lot-to-lot consistencies and product performance characteristics, while being free of surfactants, azide, glycols, and other potentially interfering constituents. All materials are packaged within ergonomically designed kit formats and are filled in easy-to-use, non-reactive, polyethylene dropper vials containing product fill volumes ample enough to cover multiple testing events.
