LGC Maine Standards, Cumberland Foreside, Maine, has announced that its Validate fibrinogen calibration verification and linearity test kit is now available for the Instrumentation Laboratory ACL Top 500, Siemens Sysmex CS-2500, and Stago STA-R Evolution hemostasis test systems. The fibrinogen test kit addresses a growing demand from laboratories in need of a human plasma hemostasis product to document linearity and calibration verification.

The kits are provided in a human plasma matrix, and evaluate five levels of recovery across the fibrinogen analytical measurement range. Each Validate fibrinogen kit is liquid and ready-to-use. The kits are prepared using the Clinical and Laboratory Standards Institute EP06-A ‘equal delta’ method of sample preparation, and offer five distinct concentrations covering the reportable range. Users dispense the product from each dropper bottle directly into five sample cups, and run in replicates.

Release of the Validate fibrinogen kit enables clinical laboratories with the named analyzers or other commonly used hemostasis systems to complete their required fibrinogen linearity and calibration verification and maximize the reportable range, while minimizing manual dilutions. Use of the product, while augmenting daily QC, assists with fulfilling various quality control requirements, such as analytical measurement range and clinically reportable range, for linearity and calibration verification under international standards, federal regulations, and credentialing organization requirements, according to the company.
