LGC announces VALIDATE
LGC Maine Standards¹ announces the release of VALIDATE® aHBs to meet the linearity and calibration verification needs of clinical laboratories running the Roche cobas®, Abbott ALINITY, and Siemens ADVIA Centaur®, platforms. VALIDATE aHBs (Order No. 801mm) offers Hepatitis B Surface IgG Antibody (aHBs) for easy, fast, efficient linearity and calibration verification. VALIDATE aHBs test kits are liquid and ready-to-use.
VALIDATE products allow clinical laboratories to complete their required linearity, calibration verification, and Analytical Measurement Range (AMR) verification, maximizing the reportable range while minimizing manual dilutions. Use of this product, while augmenting daily QC, assists with fulfilling various quality requirements – such as AMR and Reportable Range – for linearity and calibration verification under CLIA ‘88, CAP, COLA, JCAHO, JCI, and ISO 15189.
The addition of VALIDATE aHBs to LGC Maine Standards’ expanding portfolio of products demonstrates a continued commitment to manufacture high-quality linearity and calibration verification products that meet industry needs.
