AcroMetrix® Quality Control (QC) Materials for Women’s Health Testing
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 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 CT/NG Control
For laboratories in need of a quality control for the molecular detection of CT/NG, Life Technologies offers the new AcroMetrix® CT/NG Control. The AcroMetrix® CT/NG control helps laboratories maintain consistent quality across tests and thus achieve higher assurance in test results.
Benefits of AcroMetrix® GBS Positive Control
- Traceability to help ensure accurate and consistent patient results
- Ready to use in liquid form; add directly to the assay system or use with a swab
- Full process controls that contain whole inactivated bacteria to help monitor the entire PCR process, from extraction through amplification and detection
