The new liquid cardiac control from the Randox Acusera range contains assayed target values and ranges for an impressive 10 cardiac markers including BNP, NTProBNP, D-dimer, Homocysteine, Troponin I, Troponin T, Digoxin, CK-MB, hsCRP and Myoglobin. The inclusion of parameters such as D-dimer, BNP and Homocysteine in a single control material allows for effective consolidation and flexibility, the company says.

The Company claims, as a liquid stable ready to use control it is ideal for use not only in clinical laboratories but also in point of care testing (POCT). Very little training is required as there is no need for reconstitution/dilution; this reduces the risk of costly pipetting errors and saves precious laboratory time. Storage at +2-8oC means the control can be assessed immediately without the need to thaw before use, this is important for a cardiac control especially in POC testing.

The liquid cardiac control from Randox is also cost effective; it has an extended open vial stability of 30 days at +2-8oC which ultimately minimizes wastage.

Three levels are available in flexible pack sizes (3 x1ml or 3 x 3ml) spanning the complete clinical range. The control is designed to monitor low Troponin levels with levels in the level 1 control around 0.15ng/ml for Troponin I and 0.12ng/ml for Troponin T.
