Quality Controls

Ready-to-use, barcoded tubes help automate your QC workflow

Transform your QC workflow with load-and-go efficiency and robust data management. Bio-Rad’s InteliQ ready-to-use quality controls are barcoded, independent quality controls that are compatible with most major chemistry and immunoassay platforms. Because the pre-barcoded tubes are ready to load directly onto your instrument, InteliQ quality controls help automate your QC workflow—reducing turnaround time, limiting manual errors, and increasing your lab’s overall efficiency. Combined with Unity's robust data management tools, InteliQ provides a smarter way to manage your QC.
