Bio-Rad Mission: Control™ Risk Management Software Launched at AACC in Atlanta


HERCULES, CA – August 25, 2015 — Bio-Rad Laboratories, Inc. (NYSE: BIO and BIOb), a global provider of life science research and clinical diagnostics products, announced the launch of Bio-Rad Mission: Control™, the first objective risk management software to help laboratories identify the best QC rules and the right QC frequency to develop a customized quality control plan to deliver reliable test results.

Bio-Rad Mission: Control uniquely quantifies a laboratory’s risk tolerance, going beyond traditional subjective risk assessments. Using Bio-Rad Mission: Control software, a lab is able to establish a QC strategy and better assess the risk of reporting incorrect patient test results back to the physician.

“Confidently selecting the proper QC rules and the right QC frequency to fit a laboratory’s risk tolerance is a challenge,” said Maxfield Williams, Bio-Rad Director of Global Marketing, Quality Systems. “With Bio-Rad Mission: Control, laboratories can now reduce the risk of reporting incorrect results to the physician and ultimately to the patient by establishing a QC Plan that is consistent with the CLSI EP23-A guideline.”

For over 25 years Bio-Rad has been a leader in providing quality control products, technical support, as well as data management software solutions that improve the effectiveness of quality control processes.
