Does BioFire provide any guidelines for reagent Quality Control (QC)?

Depending on your regulatory body, you may have to perform Quality Control on new lot shipments, on new lots, and/or every 30 days. Ultimately, it is the responsibility of the laboratory director to determine the appropriate QC/verification protocol to follow. Please check with your regulatory body for your accreditation requirements. Please refer to the Individualized Quality Control Plan (IQCP) Risk Assessment section, Recommended QC Frequency, and Establishing QC Equivalence.

Please contact our Customer Technical Support team if you would like a copy of the IQCP Risk Assessments for the panels you are running.
