Controls / Calibrators

Control plasma and calibrators from Axis-Shield Point of Care are produced for your convenience to ensure satisfactory control of the test performance as well as for calibration of prothrombin time (PT) tests.

Control Plasma Normal
Control Plasma Normal is prepared from human, non-activated plasma and is especially suited for quality control within the normal range of coagulation activity.

Control Plasma Abnormal
Control Plasma Abnormal is prepared from human, non-activated plasma and is made for the quality control of coagulation analysis within the abnormal range of coagulation activity.

Control Plasma AK
Control Plasma AK is prepared from non-activated plasma from donors on stabilized oral anticoagulant therapy. Control Plasma AK is therefore especially suited for the quality control of PT tests used for control of oral anticoagulant treatment.
