Respiratory Panel Control

Exact Diagnostics, a Bio-Rad company, announces the launch of its EDX RP Positive Run Control, an unassayed external quality control intended to monitor the performance of clinical respiratory assays. Routine use of EDX RP Positive Run Control helps laboratories meet individualized quality control goals, including evaluation of reagent lot changes and new shipments. In addition, it monitors multiple identical devices and provides an assessment of different personnel and locations. The control contains 22 respiratory analytes that are internally value-assigned using Bio-Rad’s Digital Droplet PCR technology. The new multiplex control is a combination of whole, intact virus and bacteria samples (heated or chemically inactivated), as well as synthetic RNA transcripts. The control is designed to test the entire process of a molecular assay including extraction, detection, and amplification.
