The use of quality control and calibration materials is indicated as an objective assessment of the precision of methods and techniques in use and is an integral part of good laboratory practices.
Treponema Pallidum (TP) is the causative agent of the venereal disease Syphilis. TP is a spirochete bacterium with an outer envelope and a cytoplasmic membrane. Relatively little is known about the organism in comparison with other bacterial pathogens. According to the Center for Disease Control (CDC), the number of cases of Syphilis infection has markedly increased since 1985. Some Studies have reported a substantial epidemiological correlation between the acquisition and transmission of the HIV virus and Syphilis.
The Biorex Diagnostics Syphilis control panel is intended for checking the accuracy and precision of syphilis assays.
