Sexually Transmitted Infections | Qnostics Molecular Controls
Qnostics is a leading manufacturer of Third Party Quality Control solutions for Molecular Infectious Disease testing, supplying microbiology/virology laboratories, molecular diagnostic assay manufacturers, EQA providers, Pharmaceutical and CRO organisations for over a decade.
The Qnostics range of complete molecular controls for infectious disease testing can be used in the daily monitoring of assay performance, linearity assessment, assay evaluation, validation/verification of new assays and staff training. As whole pathogen controls, the range is designed to mimic the performance of patient samples and can be used to effectively monitor the entire testing process including extraction, amplification and detection.
Sexually transmitted infections (STIs) remain a major public health concern globally. STIs are the main preventable cause of infertility, particularly in women. However, some STIs remain asymptomatic before leading to serious reproductive complications and congenital infections, therefore appropriate diagnosis and treatment is essential.
Each Analytical Q Panel consists of five or more individual samples including a negative and is designed to cover the dynamic range of individual infectious disease assays, in a linear progression. Analytical Q Panels are intended for use in the validation and verification of new assays with the main purpose of helping to ensure assays are linear throughout the dynamic range. In addition, Analytical Q Panels will support a laboratory’s accreditation requirements, in line with ISO 15189:2012.
Evaluation Panels may be used to evaluate assay characteristics, confirm performance claims and ultimately ensure the assay is fit for purpose. Evaluation Panels may also be used in the validation of clinical assays and the development of diagnostic tests.
Evaluation Panels are available in a variety of formats and cover a range of common genotypes. Using these Evaluation Panels, laboratories can also support their accreditation requirements in line with ISO 15189 or ISO 17025.
