HERCULES, CA –August 6, 2015 – Bio-Rad Laboratories, Inc. (NYSE: BIO and BIOb), a global provider of life science research and clinical diagnostic products, announced the release of human-serum based Lyphochek® Allergen sIgE quality controls to monitor precision of in vitro allergy test procedures.

Lyphochek Allergen sIgE Control (Negative and Panel A) are multi-constituent controls that eliminate the need for multiple, single analyte controls.
