SeraCare Releases New Anti-Toxoplasma Performance Panel for Broad Sample of Challenging Material
18 Jul 2013

SeraCare Life Sciences, a provider of high quality biological materials that help optimize diagnostic performance, reliability and repeatability across the IVD lifecycle, announced it has introduced a new AccuSet™ anti-Toxoplasma performance panel. This is the newest addition to the SeraCare line of performance panels designed to help IVD manufacturers effectively challenge new assays during development.

“The demand for Toxoplasma testing in the healthcare industry remains consistently high, requiring the development of new and rigorous testing platforms,” said Kim Anderson, Product Manager, IVD Research Business Unit at SeraCare. Screening for the Toxoplasma gondii parasite is performed widely in pregnant women, infants born to infected women, and people with severely weakened or compromised immune systems, creating strong demand for rigorous anti-Toxoplasma assays.

SeraCare’s new AccuSet™ Anti-Toxoplasma gondii Mixed Titer Performance Panel (PTT202) helps IVD manufacturers respond to this market need. It comprises 21 members with a broad range of reactivity for IgG and IgM antibodies and contains donor material representing newer infections, which is critical for IVD manufacturers to effectively challenge new assays.

“Identifying donors who are newly infected with the Toxoplasma gondii parasite but already beginning to demonstrate antibody reactivity is inherently demanding,” said Anderson. “SeraCare’s unrivaled sourcing network enabled us to find these donors and develop a panel that can provide our customers with the high degree of confidence they need when challenging the anti-Toxoplasma assays they are currently developing.”

SeraCare’s new AccuSet™ Anti-Toxoplasma gondii Mixed Titer Performance Panel is available immediately worldwide.
