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.
Independent quality controls can help to reduce analytical errors. You can count on Bio-Rad QC products for your lab’s efficiency and ability to deliver reliable patient results.
Bio-Rad’s quality controls offer long-term performance monitoring of laboratory testing procedures to detect shifts that may occur. Our high-quality, human-based materials mimic patient samples, enabling more reliable results that patients deserve.
Bio-Rad offers more than 500 independent QC analytes that work across testing procedures, platforms, and labs. Our controls help to reduce set-up time, eliminate waste, and provide savings in cost and labor. Easily reserve lots to ensure long-term monitoring, and conveniently order controls for delivery.
Monitor test procedure for SARS-CoV-2 total IgG/IgM and IgG antibodies with a ready-to-use, liquid control.
Simplify your QC workflow with load-and-go efficiency and robust data management.
Monitor instrument response in detecting hemolyzed, icteric or lipemic (HIL) samples.
Improve your QC workflow with multi-analyte cardiac controls for monitoring the precision of cardiac assessment assays, including liquid controls for Troponin and other critical cardiac analytes. Liquichek cardiac controls are compatible with high-sensitivity Troponin assays with multiple levels to match the 99th percentile URL of Troponin foryour lab needs. All our cardiac controls have long shelf lives.
Together with Unity’s advanced data management tools, InteliQ quality controls help streamline your workflow to optimize efficiency. Barcoded, load-and-go controls help reduce manual tasks and increase productivity by automating data upload and sample tracking. InteliQ controls are ready-to-use and can be stored onboard and off-board (on select next-generation systems), for added convenience.
Reliable test monitoring for immunoassay is core of any lab panel. With over 75 popular immunoassay analytes, Liquichek and Lyphochek Immunoassay Plus Controls are the most comprehensive and consolidated QC products for labs performing routine or specialty immunoassay testing. Other products include controls for assaying therapeutic drugs, hypertension, fertility, tumor markers, bone markers, and endocrine markers.
We offer a comprehensive line of infectious disease controls for both serology and molecular testing. They cover a wide range of analytes, including analytes for respiratory, hepatitis and retrovirus, sexually transmitted diseases, pediatric diseases, and others. Derived from human plasma, they are manufactured and validated for all leading infectious disease assays, helping to ensure confidence in the quality and reliability of your infectious disease testing.
When you consider the increased workflow efficiencies, reduced risk of errors, and greater confidence in patient test results, Bio-Rad’s independent quality control products and services truly power exceptional labs. Reliable, different, and unbiased—these are just a few words that describe how our QC products stack up against the competition.
Different from kit calibrators
Unbiased to method of assay
Identify shifts between reagent lots
Reliable across diagnostic platforms
Allow long-term monitoring of assay performance
Targeted to be reactive within a relevant range
Independent from kit/reagent lot
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
“I trust Bio-Rad controls because they have not been formulated for only one specific test system.”
“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.”
“The instrument manufacturer’s controls are usually less sensitive to QC problems, and now we always try to work with third-party controls.”

Designing a good QC plan can be a daunting task. These 10 simple recommendations can provide essential guidance for developing an effective strategy. Free registration available.
An improper or insufficient QC program can increase costs for both the lab and overall with additional testing and longer patient hospital stays. By committing to a QC system that emphasizes assessment and prevention, labs can significantly reduce failure costs.
