binx health does not recommend a frequency for external QC testing on the binx io. The laboratory director can determine the frequency at which external controls are run on the binx io based on CLIA regulations, state requirements, Individualized Quality Control Plans, or other factors.
The binx io Instrument Operator Manual contains detailed steps for performing quality control tests. When performing QC tests for the io CT/NG Assay, we recommend the use of the following controls:
- ZeptoMetrix NATtrol CT External Run Controls (Cat No. NATCT(434)-6MC) as a CT-positive, NG-negative control
- ZeptoMetrix NATtrol NG External Run Controls (Cat No. NATNG-6MC) as an NG-positive, CT-negative control
