AcroMetrix® women’s health testing products are highly standardized, independent quality control (QC) materials designed to help laboratories evaluate their molecular tests. AcroMetrix® women’s health testing QC materials assess the performance of nucleic acid test procedures aimed at detecting human papillomavirus (HPV), Group B Streptococcus (GBS) DNA, Chlamydia trachomatis and Neisseria gonorrhoeae (CT/NG) and offer excellent traceability and reproducibility. Routine use of independent QC materials enables laboratories to monitor day-to-day test variation, lot-to-lot performance of test kits, and operator variation, and can assist in identifying increases in random or systematic errors.

AcroMetrix® HPV Controls Mimic Real Samples

AcroMetrix® HPV Controls mimic true samples. Each of the AcroMetrix® HPV Controls contains whole cells with an integrated HPV genome in liquid cytology preservative solution, expressing the E6/E7 mRNA and thus mimicking a true sample. This means you get a true full-process control, from extraction through amplification and detection.

Benefits of AcroMetrix® HPV Controls

  • Flexibility in choosing the genotypes needed to help fulfill laboratory's quality control requirements
  • Suitable for use with specimens obtained by various procedures and stored in preservatives
  • Designed to produce reactive (above the cutoff) results
