BIOREF control sera consist of human serum where several different analytes are spiked in. These
control sera are used for the internal quality control as well as for the external quality control (ring
trials) in medical diagnostic laboratories.
For the internal quality control the control sera are analyzed parallel to the patient sera in order to
evaluate the accuracy and the precision of the analyses performed. For this purpose the results are
compared with the list of target values of the respective control serum.
