The addition of VALIDATE® LP2, for the Roche cobas®, offering Apo-A1 and Apo-B, used in conjunction with VALIDATE® LP for HDL and LDL, offers easy, fast, efficient linearity and calibration verification of Lipoproteins.
CUMBERLAND FORESIDE, MAINE (PRWEB) OCTOBER 14, 2019
LGC Maine Standards1 releases 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.
