Controllab is accredited for the main Covid-19 methods

Agility, pioneering spirit and commitment to the laboratories made the provider achieve more recognition.

Controllab achieved yet another recognition: the accreditation of the Proficiency Test for Covid-19. With this, in addition to being the largest provider of Laboratory Quality Control in Brazil and Latin America, Controllab also becomes the only one in the world accredited for Covid-19 research by the methods of Molecular Biology, Immunology by Automation and Rapid Diagnostic Test (POCT) * for antibody and antigen research. The accreditation of Cgcre of Inmetro to the NBR ISO/IEC 17043 is the seal to the company’s advances in increasing the offer of accredited tests according to the standard. “All tests offered by Controllab follow the 17043 criteria and the accreditation is the recognition of these actions”, informs Fernanda Dias – service quality manager. According to the manager, applying regulatory guidelines in each implementation is part of the company’s DNA, which seeks the quality and reliability of its solutions to add value to the laboratories. This culture is practiced in the production of all materials produced by Controllab and services offered. Controllab’s agility and commitment to clinical laboratories were demonstrated once again in the beginning of the cases of the new Coronavirus in the country when the 1st Proficiency Test (EP) carried out in Brazil for SARS-CoV2 in partnership with the Society was launched Brazilian Clinical Pathology/Laboratory Medicine (SBPC / ML). As a result, a report was released, evaluated by a group of experts with the analysis of the behavior obtained in the interlaboratory comparison. The content provided information that helped both diagnostic kit manufacturers and laboratories in this challenging period. Controllab has been continuously investing in expanding the available tests and is attentive to the diagnostic evolution for Covid-19. This month expanded the offer of quality control for the disease with the saliva matrix. The company’s 43-year history is based on a commitment to offering solutions for the quality and assertiveness of laboratory results. There are more than 3,500 tests offered for different segments: clinical, blood bank, veterinary, microbiology and physical-chemical tests for medicines, food, sanitizing agents, water and effluents, fuels and others. The services provided facilitate the routine for the laboratory accreditation processes and regulatory bodies, as can be seen in a recent recognition of Control Strains in Certified Reference Materials (MRC). Detailed information about the programs and the solutions provided by Controllab are available on the website.
