Bio-Rad Introduces Liquichek Serum Indices to Monitor an Instrument's Response to Detect HIL Specimen Interferences

HERCULES, Calif.–January 29, 2019 — Bio-Rad Laboratories, Inc. (NYSE: BIO and BIOb), a global provider of life science research and clinical diagnostic products, today announced the availability of Liquichek Serum Indices that are used as part of laboratory interference testing to monitor an instrument’s ability to detect Hemolysis, Icterus, and Lipemia (HIL) specimen interferences in patient samples.

HIL interferences, originating from substances found in patient samples, can directly alter an assay result and contribute to pre-analytical variation that affects clinical chemistry testing. Liquichek Serum Indices is prepared from human-sourced material that resembles patient samples at HIL relevant concentrations and may provide laboratory technicians with confidence in their instrument's ability to detect HIL interferences in a patient sample.

Manual HIL interference detection involves subjective visual assessment from a trained laboratory technician and may result in longer turnaround times, errors, or require repeat testing. Utilizing the automated HIL detection feature on an instrument combined with Liquichek Serum Indices may help reduce errors by eliminating the need for manual inspection by a laboratory technician.

The Unity QC Data Management Solutions and Unity Interlaboratory Program, designed to improve the effectiveness of the laboratory’s statistical process control and monitor instrument performance among peer groups, is available for use with Liquichek Serum Indices.

Liquichek Serum Indices is an unassayed product that monitors instrument's response in detecting HIL interferences. For more information, please visit: www.qcnet.com/serumindices.
