LGC SeraCare Expands its SARS-CoV-2 Serology Offering with 11-Member, Positive-Patient Performance Panel

MILFORD, Massachusetts, June 18, 2020 – LGC SeraCare has released the AccuSet™ SARS-CoV-2 Performance Panel (material #0820-0410), intended for use by clinical laboratories and diagnostic manufacturers alike, to evaluate SARS-CoV-2 antibody assays.  This eleven-member validation panel contains highly characterized, true patient specimens, offering an out-of-the-box solution to provide confidence, mitigate sourcing challenges and accelerate antibody assay development, validation, verification and onboarding.

Comprised of undiluted, naturally occurring human plasma samples, this panel demonstrates a range of SARS-CoV-2 antibody reactivity. Ten panel members represent collections from multiple individuals positive for antibodies to SARS-CoV-2; a single negative member is also included. A comprehensive data sheet, generated using commercially available SARS-CoV-2 antibody assays, is provided for comparative analysis.

Our suite of products will allow you to confidently develop, challenge, troubleshoot, verify, and validate your assay from initial proof of concept through production and onboarding into the clinical laboratory.”
