LCG Maine Standards, Cumberland Foreside, Me, has released its Validate SP3 linearity and calibration verification kit for use with Roche Cobas and Beckman Coulter Immage immunochemistry analyzers.
The Validate SP3 kit evaluates instrument detection of alpha-1 acid glycoprotein, antistreptolysin O, B2-microglobulin, and immunoglobulin E. Each kit is prepared using the CLSI EP06-A ‘equal delta’ method of sample preparation and offers five distinct concentrations covering the reportable range. The reagents are provided in a ready-to-use liquid human serum matrix; users dispense the solution from each dropper bottle directly into five sample cups, and run in replicates.
Release of the kit allows clinical laboratories to complete their required serum protein linearity and calibration verification and maximize the reportable range while minimizing manual dilutions. While augmenting daily quality control activities, use of the product assists with fulfilling various quality control requirements—such as reportable range and analytical measurement range—for linearity and calibration verification under both US and overseas regulatory and accreditation schemes.
