Two quality controls for leuko-reduction testing have been cleared by the FDA. These controls provide a means to verify accuracy of test methods for counting residual leukocytes in leuko-reduced red blood cell and platelet-enriched blood components. Use of this company’s FTC2010 FluoroTrol-rWBC/RBC and FTC2015 FluoroTrol-rWBC/PRP in instrument and procedural calibration can help ensure leuko-reduced components are free of residual leukocytes.
FTC2010 FluoroTrol-rWBC/RBC and FTC2015 FluoroTrol-rWBC/PRP are intended for use in the manual Nageotte counting methodology, as well as for automated systems, such as voluntary capillary cytometry. The controls are one of only three types of quality controls that are cleared by FDA for this purpose.
