Quality Controls

At the core of every lab

The key to success for any clinical diagnostics labs is a precise and accurate result with every run. As a trusted provider, Bio-Rad offers independent quality controls that help streamline workflows, reduce errors, maintain compliance, and facilitate accreditation—improving efficiency and saving money. Our breadth of analytes enables fewer quality control suppliers, and our multi-analyte controls provide added convenience and consolidation.

Designed to monitor the precision of the test system

Control may be treated the same as a patient sample

Same control lot can be used across multiple reagent lots

Customer testimonials

“I trust Bio-Rad controls because they have not been formulated for only one specific test system.”

Lab Manager


“For a truly independent assessment of the test system, it is very, very important to use controls that are not provided by the instrument manufacturer.”

QC Coordinator


“The instrument manufacturer’s controls are usually less sensitive to QC problems, and now we always try to work with third-party controls.”

Manager, QC Group
