Matrix: lyophilised bovine serum

* Because of degradation of amiodarone and desethylamiodarone during the freeze drying process the values of these components in the control serum will be calculated on the consensus value of round 1.

For results of the tests and concentrations of the controls, please visit “concentration tests and controls“.

Please note: the KKGT wants to emphasize that control serum isn’t reference standard. The control serum is intended to evaluate your own standard. It is not intended to be used in place of your own standard.
