New VALIDATE Body Fluids kit, 205bf, will make it easier and more cost effective for laboratories to support LDT validation, documentation of linearity, calibration verification and verification of the reportable range and AMR for analytes in cerebrospinal, peritoneal ascites, pleural and pericardial body fluids, via our simulated body fluid matrix

CUMBERLAND FORESIDE, Maine, Oct. 16, 2018 /PRNewswire-PRWeb/ -- LGC Maine Standards has expanded its innovative Body

Fluids product line, VALIDATE® Body Fluids, Order Number 205bf, for easier linearity and calibration verification.

The kit, in a simulated body fluid matrix, will assist in the documentation of linearity, calibration verification and verification of the reportable range for Albumin (ALB), Amylase (AMY), Cholesterol (CHOL), Creatinine (CREA), Glucose (GLU), Lactate (LAC), Lactate dehydrogenase (LD), Total protein2 (TP), Triglycerides (TRIG), and Urea Nitrogen (UN). Each VALIDATE® Body Fluids kit, liquid and ready-to-use, prepared using the CLSI EP06-A "equal delta" sample preparation, offers five distinct concentrations to establish the reportable range. Simply dispense the solution from each dropper bottle, directly into five sample cups, and run in replicates.

VALIDATE® Body Fluids is the only comprehensive, commercially available calibration verification solution on the market allowing clinical laboratories to complete their required Body Fluids linearity and calibration verification, validation of in-house methods or laboratory developed tests (LDT) for analytes in body fluids – maximizing the reportable range while minimizing manual dilutions. Use of this product, while augmenting daily QC, assists with fulfilling various quality control requirements – such as Analytical Measurement Range (AMR) and Reportable Range – for linearity and calibration verification under CLIA '88, CAP, COLA, JCAHO, JCI and ISO 15189.
