LGC Maine Standards announces VALIDATE® LP2 kit for easier linearity and calibration verification on Roche cobas® analyzers
LGC Maine Standards has announced the release of VALIDATE® LP2 linearity and calibration verification kit, for Roche cobas® analyzers, Order No. 507ro.
The kit, in a human-serum matrix, evaluates Apolipoprotein A (Apo-A1) and Apolipoprotein B (Apo-B). Each VALIDATE LP2 kit, liquid, ready-to-use, and prepared using the CLSI EP06-A “equal delta” sample preparation, offers five distinct concentrations covering the reportable range. Simply dispense the solution from each dropper bottle, directly into five sample cups, and run in replicates.
VALIDATE LP2 (507ro), for Roche cobas users, complements our existing VALIDATE LP (Order No. 501ro) product, which targets recoveries for HDL and LDL. Together, our Lipoproteins VALIDATE offering provides for easy, fast, and efficient linearity and calibration verification testing of HDL, LDL, Apo-A1, and Apo-B in order to maximize the reportable range while minimizing manual dilutions. Use of this product, while augmenting daily QC, assists with fulfilling various quality control requirements – such as Reportable Range and Analytical Measurement Range (AMR) – for linearity and calibration verification under CLIA ‘88, CAP, COLA, JCAHO, JCI and ISO 15189.
The addition of VALIDATE LP2, for Roche cobas, to LGC Maine Standards’ expanding portfolio of products demonstrates a continued commitment to manufacture high-quality linearity and calibration verification products that meet industry needs.
LGC Maine Standards is located in Cumberland Foreside, Maine and manufactures VALIDATE linearity and calibration verification kits for over 140 analytes, including General Chemistries, Urine Chemistries, Body Fluid Chemistries, Enzymes, Lipids, HbA1c, Therapeutic Drugs, Cardiac Markers, Thyroids, Serum Proteins, Vitamin D, Tumor Markers, Anemia, Fertility, Hemostasis and Whole Blood Glucose.
LGC Maine Standards MSDRx data reduction software is available at no charge for real-time data analysis or a laboratory can send their data to LGC Maine Standards where a technical specialist will complete the data analysis and return a report within five business days.
