Bio-Rad Laboratories, a global provider of life science research and clinical diagnostic products, expanded the compatibility of its newest cardiac control, Cardiac Advance, to now include Beckman-Coulter instruments.  

Designed to monitor the precision of instrument testing for cardiac events, this next generation control is optimized with Troponin I and T targets near the limit of instrument detection, adhering to the latest guidelines set by AACC and IFCC, according to Bio-Rad Laboratories. In addition, Cardiac Advance control is consolidated with ten of the most tested cardiac analytes including Troponin, CK-MB, BNP/ProBNP, and Myoglobin.
