Amplichek I

Amplichek I is a multi-analyte quality control designed to monitor the performance of in vitro nucleic acid test systems for HIV-1, HBV and HCV viral load assays with multiple levels. Levels include negative, high positive and two low positive levels targeted for Roche and Abbott Platforms.

Amplichek I is the first assayed control that provides values (means and ranges) on these major platforms.

This product is not intended for use with blood donor screening assays in the U.S. or Canada.

  • Liquid, human plasma matrix–similar to patient samples
  • 12 month shelf life at -20° to -70°C
  • 7 day open vial stability at 2-8°C or three vial entries, whichever comes first
  • Contains inactivated viral particles to control all analytical steps–provides increased safety and reproduces the steps involved in the analytical process, including nucleic acid extraction


  • Hepatitis B Virus (HBV)
  • Hepatitis C Virus (HCV)
  • Human Immunodeficiency Virus Type 1 (HIV-1)

  • Refer to or the package insert of currently available lots for specific analyte and stability claims.
