Thermo Fisher Scientific announced the availability of its MAS Omni Infectious Disease quality control sets for monitoring serological assays for analytes such as HIV 1&2, Hepatitis B & C virus, Syphilis and HTLV I/II.
Serology testing for infectious diseases continues to be on the rise and newer instrument platforms are offering serology markers with improved sensitivity than previously available. In addition, there is continued progression with infectious disease screening protocols requiring serology testing for diagnosis, monitoring and treatment of infectious agents.
The Thermo Scientific MAS Omni Infectious positive and negative quality controls are third-party, independent external controls used to assess the performance of serological assays for infectious diseases. The new control set supports assays for HIV, Hepatitis C, Hepatitis B, HTLV and Syphilis. MAS Quality Controls users can efficiently monitor assay performance, streamline operations and potentially reduce costs without sacrificing quality or throughput.
