A broad portfolio for monitoring molecular and serology testing
Bio-Rad offers a wide range of infectious disease quality controls for both serology (antibody) and molecular (nucleic acid) testing. Our controls include tests for hepatitis and retrovirus as well as for sexually-transmitted, congenital, and respiratory diseases. They are compatible across platforms, meet international standards, and are manufactured according to the ISO 17511 standard. Long shelf lives help ensure performance of your assay and provide greater confidence in patient test results.
With quality controls covering a wide range of infectious diseases, Bio-Rad’s portfolio substantially helps meet your QC testing needs. Our controls are derived from human plasma and are compatible with major infectious disease platforms.
Our independent, high-quality controls meet strict quality metrics and are manufactured according to the ISO 17511 requirement. This helps to ensure reliable patient test results.
Our molecular controls offer verification panels, which help labs establish or verify performance characteristics, and daily run controls, which allow labs to monitor performance over time—providing added confidence in your test results.
Looking for serology infectious disease quality controls? The Bio-Rad Product Selector Guide helps you find the QC to evaluate in your lab.
Use our standard as a reference material against five gene targets for research testing of the novel coronavirus.
Detect testing deficiencies for total IgG/IgM and IgG antibodies to SARS-CoV-2 using our human plasma–formulated VIROTROL and VIROCLEAR SARS-CoV-2 controls.
Use our multi-analyte control, which contains 23 common respiratory analytes, to validate the testing of the entire process of your molecular assay.
We offer molecular standards and quality control products for the testing of
pathogens in the areas of transplant, respiratory, virology, microbiology, hospital-acquired
infections, sexually-transmitted infections, and vector-borne diseases. Our molecular controls
traceability, commutability, and absolute quantification to high-impact molecular testing.
We have a broad range of serology quality controls in the
areas of hepatitis,
retrovirus, as well as congenital/pediatric, sexually-transmitted, and
diseases. Our serology controls are formulated to challenge the cutoff of
your serology assay to help ensure
confidence in laboratory test results.
