Protinol Serum Osmolality Controls

Product Type: Standards & Controls

Protinol® is a line of protein-based serum osmometer control solutions, intended for use in evaluating the performance of the osmometer in clinical laboratories testing of human serum samples. Protinol is specifically formulated at three clinically relevant decision levels (240, 280, and 320 mOsm), allowing laboratories to comply with CLIA and CAP quality control requirements.

Features

Consistent results

Protinol is assayed to ensure consistent results from lot to lot and has the tightest manufacturing specifications of any osmometer control. This means you will spot shifts in instrument performance far sooner using Protinol.

Convenient

Protinol comes premixed and ready to use in a convenient 2mL screw top barcoded vial. It is also available in a 3ml crimp to vial for osmometers requiring larger sample volumes.

Designed specifically for osmometers

Unlike many of the multi-analyte controls, Protinol is formulated specifically for freezing point osmometers at clinically relevant decision levels (240, 280, 320 mOsm)

Tightest acceptable performance range

Only Protinol meets the College of American Pathologists guidelines by offering multiple levels at relevant medical decision points
