Bio-Rad Laboratories Quality Controls for Beckman Coulter Clinical Chemistry Systems

Bio-Rad Laboratories has launched InteliQ load-and-go quality controls for use on Beckman Coulter DxC AU and AU series clinical chemistry analyzers.

The range of barcoded, load-and-go quality controls is available in a tube configuration and consists of five chemistry controls encompassing a wide range of analytes. Developed in collaboration with Beckman Coulter, the controls eliminate the labor intensive tasks of identifying control material, aliquoting controls into sample cups, and manually programming QC runs, potentially also reducing pour-off errors and costs associated with disposables and waste removal.
