Calibrators and Controls to Support ISO 15189 Compliance

Laboratories working to ISO 15189 accreditation need to demonstrate that their testing services follow defined quality assurance levels, performing with competence and consistency.

Commercially available control materials that follow the patient pathway can help you with this by providing greater confidence in test system results, over controls that use artificial materials, or that do not enumerate accurately over a number of parameters.

ESR Testing
Erythrocyte Sedimentation Rate measurement is an easy, inexpensive, non-specific test that has been used for many years to help diagnose conditions associated with acute and chronic inflammation, including infections, cancers, and autoimmune diseases.
Haematology Calibrators
Assayed on analysers calibrated with whole blood using standard reference methods to ensure accurate and reliable calibration of haematology analysers.
Haematology Controls

Streck's extensive range of haematology controls are available for most brands of hematology analysers and come in multiple levels to test accuracy and sensitivity.

HbA1c Whole Blood Controls

Whole intact red blood cell A1c controls that test the entire HbA1c procedure, including the lysing of the red blood cell — a step omitted with other controls.

Point of Care Controls
Controls designed for point of care testing or the small laboratory performing a limited number of tests, utilising manual or semi-automated methods. Evaluate the accuracy and precision of haematology analysers.
Rapid Tests for Glandular Fever
Simple tests for Infectious Mononucleosis.
Reticulocytes Controls

Whole blood controls, manufactured with reticulocytes that resemble the appearence of patient samples for accurate identifications. Available in three levels which are well positioned to monitor the haemostatic response.

Tests and Controls for Sickle Cell Screening

Evaluate the Presence of Sickling Haemoglobins in Patient Blood Samples.
