At the core of every lab
The key to success for any clinical diagnostics labs is a precise and accurate result with every run. As a trusted provider, Bio-Rad offers independent quality controls that help streamline workflows, reduce errors, maintain compliance, and facilitate accreditation—improving efficiency and saving money. Our breadth of analytes enables fewer quality control suppliers, and our multi-analyte controls provide added convenience and consolidation.
Independent quality controls can help to reduce analytical errors. You can count on Bio-Rad QC products for your lab’s efficiency and ability to deliver reliable patient results.
Bio-Rad’s quality controls offer long-term performance monitoring of laboratory testing procedures to detect shifts that may occur. Our high-quality, human-based materials mimic patient samples, enabling more reliable results that patients deserve.
Bio-Rad offers more than 500 independent QC analytes that work across testing procedures, platforms, and labs. Our controls help to reduce set-up time, eliminate waste, and provide savings in cost and labor. Easily reserve lots to ensure long-term monitoring, and conveniently order controls for delivery.
Looking for serology infectious disease quality controls? The Bio-Rad Product Selector Guide helps you find the QC to evaluate in your lab.
Test for SARS-CoV-2 total IgG/IgM and IgG antibodies with a ready-to-use, liquid control.
Simplify your QC workflow with load-and-go efficiency and robust data management.
Detect pre-analytical interferences in hemolyzed, icteric or lipemic (HIL) samples.
Improve your QC workflow with multi-analyte cardiac controls for monitoring
the precision of cardiac assessment assays, including liquid controls for Troponin and other
critical cardiac analytes. Liquichek cardiac controls are compatible with high-sensitivity
Troponin assays with multiple levels to match the 99th percentile URL of Troponin foryour
lab needs. All our cardiac controls have long shelf lives.
Together with Unity’s advanced data management tools, InteliQ quality controls
help streamline your workflow to optimize efficiency. Barcoded, load-and-go controls help
reduce manual tasks and increase productivity by automating data upload and sample tracking.
InteliQ controls are ready-to-use and can be stored onboard and off-board (on select
next-generation systems), for added convenience.
Reliable test monitoring for immunoassay is core of any lab panel. With over
75 popular immunoassay analytes, Liquichek and Lyphochek Immunoassay Plus Controls are the
most comprehensive and consolidated QC products for labs performing routine or specialty
immunoassay testing. Other products include controls for assaying therapeutic drugs,
hypertension, fertility, tumor markers, bone markers, and endocrine markers.
We offer a comprehensive line of infectious disease controls for both serology
and molecular testing. They cover a wide range of analytes, including analytes for
respiratory, hepatitis and retrovirus, sexually transmitted diseases, pediatric diseases,
and others. Derived from human plasma, they are manufactured and validated for all leading
infectious disease assays, helping to ensure confidence in the quality and reliability of
your infectious disease testing.
When you consider the increased workflow efficiencies, reduced risk of errors, and greater confidence in
patient test results, Bio-Rad’s independent quality control products and services truly power exceptional
labs. Reliable, different, and unbiased—these are just a few words that describe how our QC products stack
up against the competition.
Broad spectrum of multi-analyte controls offers values for expanded test platforms, consolidation, and streamlined workflows
Controls are manufactured independently of instrument, reagents, and calibrators for an unbiased assessment
Long shelf lives help reduce crossover studies and enable long-term QC monitoring
Controls are made of a human-based matrix similar to patient samples and target clinically relevant ranges
Diverse value assignment network helps labs compare data with other labs across the world
Unity's automated data analysis provides access to worldwide Unity peer group to help maintain QC lab quality
“I trust Bio-Rad controls because they have not been formulated for only one specific test system.”
“For a truly independent assessment of the test system, it is very, very important to use controls that are not provided by the instrument manufacturer.”
“The instrument manufacturer’s controls are usually less sensitive to QC problems, and now we always try to work with third-party controls.”

Designing a good QC plan can be a daunting task. These 10 simple recommendations can provide essential guidance for developing an effective strategy. Free registration available.
An improper or insufficient QC program can increase costs for both the lab and overall with additional testing and longer patient hospital stays. By committing to a QC system that emphasizes assessment and prevention, labs can significantly reduce failure costs.
