Unity Real Time is an expert QC data management solution that facilitates compliance under CLIA guidelines and the ISO 15189 standard. Advanced reports for data analysis coupled with run validation and comprehensive audit trails help make Unity a comprehensive QC tool.


Data analysis grid

The Data Analysis Grid allows users to internally compare multiple instrument statistical QC datasets side-by-side within a single display. The grid visually distinguishes data points exceeding specified alert limits.

Bench / Supervisor review with reporting

Regulatory agencies frequently require documentation of QC data review. The Bench / Supervisor Review simplifies this process and provides an electronic trail of the review.

Analytical goals

Analytical goals provide statistical feedback and are used in parallel with traditional SPC rules. This creates positive feedback for adjusting SPC rule selections and helps make control of the analytical process more efficient and effective.

Peer group reports

Interlaboratory peer group reports show comparative results among laboratories and are used to determine values and assess test methods. These reports help ensure the reliability and precision of test systems and improve analytical performance.
