Protinol™ and Renol™ Controls

Verify instrument performance at clinically relevant osmolality levels

The Protinol and Renol QC that Advanced Instruments offers is just what our lab needed to verify and feel confident in our instrument's performance at clinically relevant levels. Our original QC material was only assessing abnormal high values. Now ... we have QC that measures low, normal and high values, which helps us stay in control at all decision points. ... no more thawing so saves time! ... Now we can easily scan the provided barcodes ... to ensure all results make it to the LIS. It has helped us stay more organized and eliminated manual entry of results. ...

Manufacturer recommend Osmometer Quality Controls

Your lab reports test results every day that physicians rely on to diagnose and treat patients. You need reliable tools that give you accurate results. Your osmometer is critical and its results are vital to the diagnosis and treatment of body fluid disorders.  Even a slight shift in osmolality may be clinically significant—potentially changing the course of treatment. Use our protein-based and urine osmolality controls daily to check your osmometer’s calibration, detect errors, and monitor test performance and provide accurate results.

Highlighted features
  • Clinically relevant formulas so you can confidently report results
  • Tight tolerances so you can quickly spot shifts in performances
  • Manufacturer recommended controls
  • Meet CAP and CLIA guidelines

  • No thawing, adding water, or worrying about mixing errors

  • Clinically relevant formulas verify instrument important reference points

  • Instant reports to evaluate performance in real-time
  • Receive monthly reports including all peer group data
  • Increase assurance in proficiency survey results

  • Tight tolerances let you quickly spot shifts in performance

FAQs

It is important to use controls that are formulated to tight tolerance specifications by a reputable manufacturer. There is a tolerance associated with formulating a calibrator/control due to normal variations in the instrumentation and quality control processes. This tolerance can affect the mean value obtained when using the calibrator.
