Instrument verification involves testing standardized material on a diagnostic instrument to ensure that it is “fit-for-purpose” before clinical specimens can be tested. Verification should be performed on each analytical testing module upon:

  • Instrument installation
  • Module replacement
  • If an instrument is relocated
  • Post Cartridge calibration

The verification results are “unblinded” and reporting is managed manually by receiving laboratories or automated through

The DCS product for verification is available in a 5 spot and 1 spot card format, as shown.
