  • VALIDATE® IBC will address the growing demand by laboratories in need of a product to document their Iron Binding Capacity linearity and calibration verification.

    CUMBERLAND FORESIDE, Maine – June 5, 2017 – LGC Maine Standards1 announces the release of VALIDATE® IBC linearity and calibration verification kit.  The VALIDATE® IBC kit, in a human serum matrix, evaluates Total Iron Binding Capacity (TIBC) and Unsaturated Iron Binding Capacity (UIBC).  Each VALIDATE® IBC kit, prepared using the CLSI EP06-A “equal delta” sample preparation, offers five distinct concentrations covering the reportable range of most chemistry analyzers.  Each kit is liquid and ready-to-use.  Simply dispense the product from each dropper bottle, directly into five sample cups, and run in replicates.

    Release of VALIDATE® IBC allows clinical laboratories to complete their required TIBC and UIBC linearity and calibration verification and maximize the reportable range while minimizing manual dilutions.  Use of this product, while augmenting daily QC, assists with fulfilling various quality control requirements for linearity and calibration verification under CLIA, CAP, COLA, JCAHO, JCI and ISO 15189.

    The addition of VALIDATE® IBC to the LGC Maine Standards expanding portfolio of products demonstrates a continued commitment to manufacture high-quality linearity and calibration verification products that meet industry needs.

    LGC Maine Standards is located in Cumberland Foreside, Maine and manufactures VALIDATE® linearity and calibration verification kits for over one hundred analytes, including General Chemistries, Urine Chemistries, Enzymes, Lipids, HbA1c, Therapeutic Drugs, Cardiac Markers, Thyroids, Serum Proteins, Vitamin D, Tumor Markers, Anemia, Fertility, Hemostasis and Whole Blood Glucose.
