A Reference Standard is a highly characterized, standardized and validated reference material. They enable the measurement of the sensitivity, specificity and accuracy of your assay or workflow.
|Independent Results||External Controls|
The Reference Standard is a universal reference material that performs equally and consistently between platforms, laboratories, operators and assays.
Unlike controls provided in kits or produced in-house, they produce honest results with no pre-conceptions which often helps in discovering experimental problems.
Produced outside of your laboratory, Reference Standards are produced under ISO9001 conditions to ensure their reproducibility and reliability.
Being engineered from a cell line background they provide a renewable source of reference material allowing for a consistent external quality control.
