Randox UK_EQA, IQC, and Novel Test Reagents

Randox Acusera offers true third party controls with complete test menu consolidation through the Acusera range of controls. All Acusera controls are designed to react to the test system in the same manner as your patient samples. This reduces inconvenient and costly shifts in QC results when reagent batch is changed. Manufactured independently, the Acusera range delivers unbiased performance assessment with many presently used analysers and methodologies. This helps in meeting the ISO15189:2012 requirements whilst simultaneously eliminating the need for multiple instrument dedicated controls.

Managing all these inter-laboratory QC Data is challenging. This is where the Acusera 24•7 excels. An online QC software with real-time peer group statistics, the Acusera 24•7 allows you to update live peer data, compare QC data to other laboratories using the same lot of QC, and identify widespread issues or issues unique to your lab. The Acusera 24•7 gives various comprehensive reports and statistics. On top of Sigma scores, Bias %, Total Error, the Acusera 24•7 also provides the exclusive Uncertainty of Measurement (UM). The UM is automatically calculated for each essay and QC lot, helping you to meet the ISO15189:2012 requirements.
