Bio-Rad - Preparing for a Stress-free QC Audit

Steroid hormones are important signaling molecules that regulate many physiological processes and their underlying biochemical processes.

They are found in humans and many animal species.
Tecan’s new product, Steroid Panel Tec-TraceTM, is intended to be used as an aid in the analysis of 17 steroid hormones and dexamethasone, particularly using LC-MS methods.

The 17 steroid hormones included in the panel are: 11-deoxycorticosterone, 11-deoxycortisol, 17-hydroxyprogesterone, 21-deoxycortisol, aldosterone, androstenedione, corticosterone, cortisol, cortisone, dehydroepiandrosterone, dehydroepiandrosterone sulfate, dihydrotestosterone, progesterone, testosterone, 17-hydroxypregnenolone, estradiol, and estrone.

User benefits:
• Saving time and resources by using a conveniently portioned to aliquots commercial product with a steady supply, instead of self-production, thereby increasing overall lab productivity.
• One comprehensive panel that includes 17 steroid hormones and dexamethasone, making it suitable for various application areas and providing utmost flexibility to adapt to in-house tests.
• The calibrators and controls are based on human serum.
• The calibrators are metrologically traceable to SI units, in accordance with ISO 17511:2021, ensuring consistent measurement results of the highest quality. This reliability builds long-term trust and reduces the need for re-runs
• The accurate alignment with certified reference materials from US-NIST* and EC-JRC** enables excellent correlation with authoritative sources, facilitating inter-laboratory comparisons.
