The use of Certified Reference Materials (CRM) adds precision, accuracy and traceability to an analytical process, enabling more reliable measurements

Certified Reference Material (CRM) is the priority recommendation of ABNT NBR ISO/IEC 17025 for metrological traceability. Laboratories that have this recognition can rely on Controllab, which is accredited (PMR 0009) by Inmetro’s General Coordination of Accreditation (Cgcre) and produces CRM in accordance with internationally accepted criteria and established in the ABNT NBR ISO 17034 standard.

In the company’s portfolio, the CRMs are available:

Chemical property

• Redox Potential

• Electrolytic Conductivity Solution

• Electrochemical Multiparameter Solution

• Buffer Solution for pH

Physical property

• Refractive Index

• Turbidity

Clinical and biological properties

In this property, the MRC Qualitative Reference Cultures stands out, with more than 60 strains available that meet the various microbiological routines. They are strains from the NCTC (National Collection of Type Cultures) collection, the most renowned in Europe and also the oldest collection for bacteria in the world, founded in 1920.

In the routine of the analysis laboratories, the reference strains are fundamental for the quality control of the inputs used in the clinical and veterinary diagnostic exams, in the microbiological analysis of food, water, pharmaceutical products and the environment. They are also of great importance for carrying out studies to validate analytical methods and determine measurement uncertainty.

Making lyophilized strains available for immediate supply and with the recognition of ABNT NBR ISO 17034, is in line with the Controllab mission to continuously provide the best solutions for laboratory quality control.

Accreditation Cgcre/Inmetro - Certified Reference Material Producer

Controllab has been accredited as a Certified Reference Material Producer (MRC) since 2016 by Inmetro’s General Coordination for Accreditation (CGCRE), under the PMR 0009 number. The assessment of this conformity is carried out according to the requirements established in ABNT NBR standards ISO 17034 and Inmetro, thus ensuring competence for the production of MRCs, according to the Scope of Accreditation.

CAL 0214

Accreditation Cgcre/Inmetro - Calibration Laboratory

In December 2002, the Calibration Laboratory was accredited by Inmetro’s General Coordination for Accreditation (CGCRE). With this recognition, it became an integral part of the Brazilian network of accredited laboratories, under nº214. Since then, it is periodically evaluated for the maintenance and/or extension of accreditation.

Cgcre is signatory to the Mutual Recognition Arrangements of the International Laboratory Accreditation Cooperation (ILAC) and Interamerican Accreditation Cooperation (IAAC).

PEP 0003

Accreditation Cgcre/Inmetro - Proficiency Test Provider

In September 2011, Controllab was accredited by Inmetro’s General Coordination for Accreditation (CGCRE) as a proficiency test provider, under nº PEP0003. Initially as part of a pilot project by Inmetro, this accreditation was based on ILAC G13: 2007 and included several clinical and hemotherapy tests. In the periodic evaluations of this accreditation, new segments and tests are included and the evaluation is now conducted according to ABNT NBR ISO/IEC 17043.

This accreditation attests to Controllab’s technical competence to develop and conduct proficiency tests in accordance with international requirements and enables it to be recognized in other countries, in accordance with mutual recognition agreements signed by Brazil in Mercosur, the Americas and Europe.
