Detect Assay Drift Over Time
- Most test methods are stable over time. But sometimes reagent lot changes or other factors can cause assay behavior to change. STATLIA MATRIX automatically monitors the behavior of a test over time and creates detailed Quality Assurance reports of this behavior periodically, so you are alerted to any behavioral changes.
- In the above graphs, the green regions are from the reference assay pools, the red regions are from the new assay pools, and the rust regions are the overlap of the two pools. The new assay pool from the test method on the left shows little drift from its original reference assay pool. The same test method on the right shows an extreme case of behavior change in assays that used a new lot of a critical reagent.
- STATLIA MATRIX tracks the reagent lots used in each assay in its Reagent Inventory. You can use STATLIA MATRIX’s Quality Assurance feature to compare assays that used a new reagent lot to show regulatory compliance.
