Serum Indices

Liquichek Serum Indices from Bio-Rad Laboratories, Inc. are used as part of laboratory interference testing to monitor an instrument’s ability to detect hemolysis, icterus, and lipemia (HIL) specimen interferences in patient samples. The products are prepared from human-sourced material that resembles patient samples at HIL relevant concentrations. Utilizing the automated HIL detection feature on an instrument combined with Liquichek Serum Indices may help reduce errors by eliminating the need for manual inspection by a laboratory technician. The Unity QC Data Management Solutions and Unity Interlaboratory Program, designed to improve the effectiveness of the laboratory’s statistical process control and monitor instrument performance among peer groups, is available for use with Liquichek Serum Indices.
