LGC Maine Standards: Validate PTH
LGC Maine Standards has launched the Validate PTH for labs running the Roche Cobas platform and in need of verifying the linearity and calibration of their systems. Validate PTH includes the analyte parathyroid hormone and is formulated in a human serum matrix using the CLSI EP06-A "equal delta" sample preparation method. It provides five distinct concentrations across the claimed range of Roche's Cobas instrument. LGC Maine Standards said that in combination with calcium, magnesium, and phosphorous in Validate GCI and vitamin D in Validate VIT D, labs can challenge the reportable range of Roche Cobas bone-related assays. While supporting daily quality control, it can help fulfill quality control requirement, including analytical measurement range and reportable range for linearity and calibration verification under CLIA "88, CAP, COLA, JCAHO, JCI, and ISO 15189.
