Thermo Fisher Scientific, Waltham, Mass, has released the Thermo Scientific MAS Omni Infectious Disease quality control sets for monitoring serological assays for analytes such as human immunodeficiency virus 1 and 2, hepatitis B and C viruses, syphilis, and Human T-lymphotropic virus types I and II. The Thermo Scientific MAS Omni Infectious positive and negative quality controls are third-party, independent external controls used to assess the performance of serological assays for infectious diseases. As with all Thermo Scientific MAS Quality Controls users can efficiently monitor assay performance, streamline operations, and potentially reduce your spending without sacrificing quality or throughput.
