New AccuSpan Panels

SeraCare Life Sciences this week introduced seven new AccuSpan molecular linearity panels for the detection of adenovirus, varicella-zoster virus, JC virus, herpes simplex viruses 1 and 2, Epstein-Barr virus, and BK virus.

The new panels help assay developers challenge their transplant assays from extraction phase through amplification. Each panel comprises one negative, one low positive, one medium positive, and one high positive sample. The panels come in a ready-to-use format with target concentrations covering the dynamic range of most molecular assays, SeraCare said.
