Bio-Rad Laboratories Exact Diagnostics Group B Strep Run Controls

Bio-Rad Laboratories has launched quality controls for use with group B Streptococcus molecular assays. The Exact Diagnostics GBS Positive and Negative Run Controls complement the previously launched Exact Diagnostics GBS Verification & Validation Panel. The positive control contains whole, intact, heat-inactivated GBS bacteria at a challenging concentration, to simulate a low positive clinical specimen, while the negative control contains human cells to mimic adequate specimen sampling. Both controls are formulated in LIM broth matrix, internally tested using Bio-Rad Droplet Digital PCR, and manufactured independently from the Exact Diagnostics GBS Verification & Validation Panel.
