Product Spotlight: Liquid Assayed Chemistry Premium Plus
Routine clinical chemistry is the basis of a laboratory’s daily testing, it is, therefore, important to choose a chemistry control which offers the greatest consolidation, accuracy, and stability.
The Acusera Liquid Assayed Chemistry Premium Plus control is one of the most comprehensive chemistry controls on the market, with instrument specific values provided for 99 analytes. A unique combination of proteins, lipids, cardiac markers, therapeutic drugs, immunoassay, and routine chemistry parameters enables effective consolidation, as well as time and cost savings. As a true third party control, it is manufactured independently from any analyser, with values assigned using our unique value assignment process, target values are available for several common analyser platforms. Containing an impressive array of lipids and Immunoassay parameters, this Acusera Chemistry control offers unrivaled consolidation.

α-1- Acid Glycoprotein
Acid Phosphatase (Total)
C-Reactive Protein (CRP)
CRP is a protein made by the liver and released into the blood within a few hours after tissue injury, the start of an infection, or other cause of inflammation. It is tested to detect the presence of inflammation and can be used to monitor the response to treatment for inflammatory disorders. CRP is included in the Liquid Assayed Chemistry Premium Plus control, ensuring accurate instrument performance at key decision levels and further reduces the number of individual controls required. CRP is available at elevated levels in the level three control.
Troponin T (TnT)
A troponin test measures the levels of troponin proteins in blood and is used when a patient is suspected to have suffered a heart attack. These proteins are released when the heart muscle has been damaged, such as with a heart attack. More damage to the heart would result in a higher level of Troponin T. As a highly consolidated contorol, the Liquid Assayed Chemistry Premium Plus includes Troponin T, meaning a separate control is not required.
