Technopath Manufacturing Ltd is an ISO 13485 accredited manufacturer of Plasma Components, Quality Controls, Calibrators and Proficiency Sera for IVD. The company has particular expertise in test consolidation, analyte stabilisation and platform optimisation. As might be assumed given the similarity in name, TECHNOPATH Distribution Ltd and Technopath Manufacturing Ltd were once parts of the same organisation. We are now separate companies whereby Technopath Manufacturing Ltd manufacture the Multichem range of Clinical Chemistry QC products, and TECHNOPATH Distribution Ltd then take over from that point and supply directly to end user customers, managing the LOT sequester programs and all customer related support elements.
The Multichem® Clinical Chemistry & Immunoassay Quality Controls are true third-party quality controls not linked to any platform provider, thereby meeting the requirements of ISO15189 and complying with the recommended guidelines from CPA/UKAS.
All of the Multichem® quality control products are manufactured using a uniquely stabilised human matrix that eliminates the need for the high levels of preservatives used in other commercially available controls. These preservatives when used in conjunction with bovine based products can adversely affect the accuracy and reproducibility of test methods. The Multichem® range is human based and hence mimics the performance of patient samples, thereby minimising any such matrix effects.
The Multichem® product range includes fully test consolidated solutions for both chemistry and immunoassay. Designed to complement and support Multichem® Quality Controls, the IAMQC QC Software provides Laboratory Managers and Biomedical Scientists with a range of QC software tools to analyse their QC results in real-time.
At TECHNOPATH, we introduced a LOT Sequester Management Program; whereby each of our customers is allocated a specific LOT for an agreed defined period reducing the requirement to run up new LOT’s on a more frequent basis.
