Protinol Protein-Based Controls

Use Protinol every day you test serum patient samples. It’s the manufacturer-recommended control designed specifically for your osmometer.

Our controls help your lab meet CAP and CLIA guidelines; comply with regulations which recommend running multiple controls at different concentrations daily to verify assay performance at relevant levels. Read our new whitepaper, “Evaluation of Commercially Available Osmometer Control Solutions,” to learn about the best practices for osmometer quality control.

Ready-to-use and available in 3 clinically relevant levels: Low: 240, Normal: 280, and High: 320 mOsm/kg H2O

Use our free AdvancedQC™ online peer program to compare your results with other labs.

“We use the Advanced Instruments Protinol and [Renol] controls and calibration. The analyzer is very simple to use. We need to update in the next year.”



Clinically-relevant formulas provide important reference points and tight tolerances let you quickly spot shifts in performance.


Comply with regulations which recommend running two controls at different concentrations daily to verify assay performance at relevant levels.


Access instant reports to evaluate performance in real-time, receive monthly reports including all peer group data, and increase assurance in proficiency survey results.


No thawing, adding water, or worrying about mixing errors
