Thermo Fisher Scientific provides controls for nucleic acid testing (NAT) and serological testing. These controls are optimized and validated to meet the quality assurance needs of blood screening labs. Thermo Scientific offers a wide range of quality controls that provide consistency and lot to lot reproducibility required to ensure the effective detection of infectious diseases.
- Matches assays commonly used for infectious disease testing
- Reacts at appropriate level within the analytical range of specific assays
- Manufactured in an ISO 13485 facility and where applicable, standardized against standards for traceability
- HIV-1, HCV, and HBV AcroMetrix quality controls products can be traced to the World Health Organization (WHO) standard
Acrometrix Controls for Nucleic Acid Testing during Blood Screening
Thermo Scientific™ AcroMetrix NAT Blood Screening Controls are intended for In Vitro Diagnostic Use. The precision and reproducibility of NAT assays are designed to detect viral nucleic acids in human plasma from donations of whole blood and blood components for transfusion. AcroMetrix NAT Blood Screening controls mimic naturally occurring plasma specimens and can help facilitate the detection of potential systematic deviations of tests for the qualitative determination of viral nucleic acids.
Acrometrix Controls for Serology/Immunoassay testing during Blood Screening
The precision and reproducibility of serology assays is critical when testing human plasma from donations of whole blood and blood components. Blood screening serological controls mimic naturally occurring plasma specimens and are available in single and multianalyte form, depending on the control. The Thermo Scientific™ AcroMetrix Serology Controls enable monitoring of day-to-day test performance of IVD assays for the detection of human infectious diseases.
