Supporting a diverse global QC network
Bio-Rad is a leader in independent quality controls with the world’s largest QC peer group program. Value assignment (VA) testing is critical to support a diverse global testing network. When participating in the VA program, laboratories and other organizations contribute data toward establishing statistically valid means and ranges for Bio-Rad quality control inserts. Together with Unity, our industry-leading data management software, our VA program can help increase confidence in the reliability of patient test results.
Value assignment testing is critical to support our diverse global testing network. By participating in the VA program, your laboratory or organization can help play a key role in new product development or product modification studies.
By participating in the value assignment program, labs contribute data that is used to develop product insert values. Submitting data in the VA program helps increase visibility of popular instruments in your region.
Participation in the QC value assignment program can also generate additional revenue for your laboratory or organization. We seek and engage support from high-quality labs, and labs are compensated for these testing services.
