Analytes Included

Optitrol COVID-19 M contains human plasma with sodium azide and ProClin 950 as preservatives and contains IgM antibodies against pathogen of COVID-19, SARS-CoV-2.

Each plasma unit was separately tested and found negative/non-reactive for anti-HIV, anti-HCV and HBsAg.

Intended Use:

Optitrol COVID-19 M is a single marker quality control (QC) sample intended to monitor the performance of in-vitro assays for determination of IgM antibodies against the pathogen of COVID-19, SARS-CoV-2 in human serum and plasma. Optitrol COVID-19 M is an unassayed control without target values and is optimized for different platforms and assays.

The controls must not be used as a substitute for the mandatory manufacturer’s kit controls provided with the assay. Examples of reactivity (no target values) for this control on different test systems can be found at http://www.diamex.com.

Optitrol QC results are helpful in determining the precision of testing systems and in identifying sources of variation. Users of Optitrol QC samples have access to EDCNet, an Internet-based QC results monitoring system at http://www.nrlquality.org.au/Optitrol.
