SeraCare’s new products include:

  • A set of specific controls for infectious disease testing that offer the most comprehensive assay coverage in the industry for the Abbott ARCHITECT testing platform. SeraCare’s new controls set the standard for accuracy, delivering customers the potential for lower cost, more efficient testing and improved error detection in the laboratory.
  • ACCURUN® 1 Series 2700 Multi-Marker Positive Control allows end-users to develop a more efficient quality control program by offering a single product for multiple antigens related to various types of HIV, hepatitis, cytomegalovirus and T-lymphotropic virus.
