CTS Serology Panels

CTS serology panels are used to meet the requirements of the new European Regulation 2017/746 on in-vitro-diagnostics. This regulation replaces the previous Directive 98/79/EC and will need to be implemented by May 26, 2022. 
You can find more information about the IVDR here.

If you have any further questions about the new IVDR, or if you need assistance with re-sampling or with the implementation of legally compliant documentation, please contact us.
