AcroMetrix, the leading provider of quality control standards for clinical diagnostic and blood testing laboratories, announced today at the Association of Molecular Pathology 2008 Annual Meeting, the release of the ValiQuant HBV Quantification Panel designed for validation and verification of new Hepatitis B real-time PCR assays and for training of laboratory personnel.

The large dynamic range of the panel means laboratories will have to dilute fewer patient samples to get them in the reportable range of the assay, giving them both a cost and time savings.

AcroMetrix, the leading provider of quality control standards for clinical diagnostic and blood testing laboratories, announced today at the Association of Molecular Pathology 2008 Annual Meeting, the release of the ValiQuant HBV Quantification Panel designed for validation and verification of new Hepatitis B real-time PCR assays and for training of laboratory personnel.

The ValiQuant HBV Panel offers the largest dynamic range currently available on the market which allows testing laboratories to validate the lower and upper limits of an assay's reportable range. This enables the laboratory to meet regulations and potentially allows for more patient samples to be reported by the laboratory. AcroMetrix ValiQuant HBV Panel members are traceable to International Units to facilitate global quality through ISO standards.

"The ValiQuant HBV Panel offers clear benefits to the laboratories," said Joe Wilson, Vice-President, Sales and Marketing. "The large dynamic range of the panel means laboratories will have to dilute fewer patient samples to get them in the reportable range of the assay, giving them both a cost and time savings."

This new ValiQuant HBV Panel fully complies with the ISO 17511:2003 (In vitro diagnostic medical devices -- Measurement of quantities in biological samples -- Metrological traceability of values assigned to calibrators and control materials) standard. Through the ISO 17511 standard, AcroMetrix aims to facilitate a uniform global quality control network by producing consistent and traceable universal standards.
