Research & Development

Patient samples
(Serum, Human Plasma, Tissue)

  • Patient samples
  • Antigens
  • Analytical sensitivity/specificity panels
  • Diagnostic sensitivity/specificity panels
  • Blood-bank marker panel
  • Matrix panels (matched sets)
  • Inhibition (Haemolytic, Lipemic, Icteric)
  • Interference (RF, HAMA, Hyper IgM/IgG, etc.)
  • Parameter specific cross-reactive panels
  • Prospective sample collection
  • Tissue samples
Studies / Validation

Proben oder Panel
(Serum, Plasma and Tissue)

Validation of HIV, HBV, HCV in vitro diagnostics according to common technical specifications (CTS serology and NAT, 2009/108/EC, IVDR)

  • Genotype/Subtype Panels
  • Seroconversion panels
  • Blood-bank marker panel
  • Matrix - matched sets
  • Interference/ Inhibition Panels
  • Cross-reactive panels

Validation of other parameters (i.e. Haematology, Clin. Chemistry Endocrinology, Autoimmunity)

  • Diagnostic sensitivity/specificity panels
  • Clinical specimens for method comparison (left-over or prospective samples)
  • Matrix panels
  • Reference range samples
Quality Control

QC Release Panels 
(Serum, Plasma and Tissue)

  • Positive (low, medium, high range)
  • Negative (no virus, no analyte)
  • Cut-off (values at range of LoD to clinical decision point)

Other panels

  • Seroconversion
  • Standardization

Bulk Materials
(Serum, Plasma and Tissue)

  • Positive Plasma: Disease state (all ranges), Infectious diseases, ToRCH and others
  • Negative Plasma: no virus, no analyte
  • Processed Plasma: Recalcified/delipidized/diafiltrated/ultrafiltrated Human serum is derived from clotted whole blood
  • Samples for ring trials (for external quality assessment)
