Serum Indices

Clinical chemistry testing consists of pre-analytical, analytical, and post-analytical phases. While our chemistry controls are used in the analytical phase to monitor your QC assay’s precision, Bio-Rad's Serum Indices products are used in the pre-analytical phase to monitor the ability of an instrument to detect hemolysis, icterus, and lipemia (HIL), which are the most commonly tested interferences that affect the integrity of patient samples in the clinical laboratory.
