High quality diagnostic reagents

 Our 30 years of experience in revolutionary diagnostic solutions has allowed us to create a leading portfolio of 3rd party reagents which is internationally recognised as being of the highest quality. We invest heavily in research and development, and our portfolio is constantly expanding to provide you with an increased choice of high quality, cost-effective reagents.

A wide range of formats are available, providing greater flexibility and choice. Our product range includes liquid/lyophilised, assayed/unassayed and human/bovine materials. Customers can even choose between multi-analyte controls or single analyte controls, depending on their laboratory needs. In addition to this, Randox can also offer the laboratory a tailor made quality control material, should there be something you wish to adjust or change. This could be anything from the numbers of analytes, vial sizes, concentrations or format we present current products in.

Benefits of Randox Acusera

Stability

Product shelf-life and stability is an important consideration when choosing quality control material. Our lyophilised controls generally have a shelf life of up to 4 years from the date of manufacture while our liquid controls are stable for up to 2 years ensuring continuity of lot supply.

Third Party Controls

Our complete range of true third party controls is designed to provide unbiased performance assessment across a wide range of instruments and methods. By this we mean that our material has not been manufactured in line with, or optimised for use with any particular reagent, method or instrument and is designed to be compatible for use on any analyser. Also, when assigning targets and ranges, Randox uses totally independent laboratories, resulting in genuinely independent, multi-method and multi-analyser data.

Traceability

Our complete range of true third party controls is designed to provide unbiased performance assessment across a wide range of instruments and methods. By this we mean that our material has not been manufactured in line with, or optimised for use with any particular reagent, method or instrument and is designed to be compatible for use on any analyser. Also, when assigning targets and ranges, Randox uses totally independent laboratories, resulting in genuinely independent, multi-method and multi-analyser data.

Instrument and reagent manufacturers often directly assign their own control values, meaning very few sets of results are used over very few reagent batches. The resulting target values are therefore not as accurate as an assayed control ought to be.

Consolidation

Randox is a world leading provider of multi-analyte, third party controls designed to help streamline QC in even the most demanding laboratories. Our unique combination of analytes enables complete test menu consolidation and will ultimately reduce costs without compromising on quality or performance. The use of fewer controls will decrease the time spent preparing multiple controls, increase storage space and simplifying QC procedures in any lab.

Many manufacturers ‘cut corners’ in an attempt to keep costs low, this can result in unrealistic values and ultimately controls that do not adequately cover the clinical range. The inclusion of analytes at clinically relevant concentrations in all Randox controls will eliminate the need to purchase additional low or high level controls at extra expense.

Material

The human based material used in the production of our Quality Controls is sourced from the United Kingdom Blood Transfusion Service. All donors are screened for HIV, Hepatitis A, B, C, HTLV and Syphilis, using immunoassay techniques to detect antibodies and specific DNA tests to detect any viruses even at early stages of infection. This view to safety and quality is the trademark of Randox control manufacture. The integrity of our base materials is a critical factor in producing highly stable and consistent controls.

Concentrations & Levels

Many manufacturers ‘cut corners’ or take shortcuts in an attempt to keep costs down. This often results in unrealistic values, parameters imbalances, a frequent lack of differentiation between levels and ultimately in controls that do not completely cover the clinical range. In many situations these inadequacies force laboratories to purchase additional and often expensive low or high level controls. For example Troponin levels in the level 1 control from some manufacturers do not adequately cover the cut-off levels used in diagnosis. This often results in the need for additional controls to cover these lifesaving concentrations. The levels of Troponin I and Troponin T in our Cardiac and Liquid Cardiac controls are in line with internationally recommended levels.

Value Assignment

Randox controls are the most accurately assigned controls available in the diagnostic industry! Our unique value assignment process employs over 30,000 laboratory participants worldwide ensuring the availability of data for a wide range of instruments and methods.This, coupled with unrivalled traceability to International Reference Laboratories, provides a product of unsurpassed accuracy and reliability.
