The look of true human tissue paired with the consistency needed for quality standards.
Introducing TruQ Controls™, the industry’s first 3D reference standard tissue controls.
Complete consistency between every block and slide
TruQ Controls™ were developed using proprietary cell culture technology and contain a consistent IHC marker expression profile. Each lot we produce is tested externally at a CAP-accredited lab for both HER-2 IHC and FISH.
Complete resemblance to true tissue
These reference standard controls have defined tissue-like morphology, eliminating the need for additional training to interpret results, unlike cell-line controls.
The new standard for external quality assurance (EQA) testing
Until now, variability has prevented a clear standard for proficiency in laboratory testing. CIQC (Canadian Immunohistochemistry Quality Control) implemented use of TruQ Controls HER2 as part of their EQA (external quality assurance) testing protocols for laboratory proficiency, and the product is in use by CAP (College of American Pathologists).
