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.

Customer testimonials

“I trust Bio-Rad controls because they have not been formulated for only one specific test system.”

Lab Manager France

“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.”

Manager, QC Group Russia
