Foco Vet

The equipment distributor has teamed up with the quality control provider to evidence and ensure the quality of the “BC 30 vet”, a high-tech four-part hematology analyzer

The participation of Foco Vet – a company specializing in the best solutions in veterinary diagnostic equipment – in the Controllab, Collaborator Supplier Program, demonstrates the distributor’s commitment to the quality of the products offered. Consequently, there is more reliability for laboratories seeking quality verification and compliance with CFMV Resolution No. 1374 – Resolução CFMV nº 1374.

The resolution came into effect in December 2020 and has specific guidelines for animal diagnosis. It provides that the technically responsible veterinarian must guarantee the quality of the examination performed, whether performed in an office, clinic or laboratory.

Among the guidelines, the resolution determines that, through quality control, laboratories and their subsidiaries must ensure the reliability of the services contemplating for the tests: form of control and frequency of use, limits and acceptability criteria for these results, in addition evaluation and recording of them.

Helping laboratories to efficiently comply with this requirement of the resolution is one of the fruits of the partnership between the distributor and Controllab – the largest Brazilian company in laboratory quality control.

Foco Vet works with BC 2800 vet, BC 5000 vet and BC 30 vet (new) equipment. All are included in Controllab’s quality control program and, whenever a group of users of these systems is formed, the provider makes reference values ​​available for the controls.

By including the BC 30 vet in the Collaborating Supplier partnership, the reference values ​​of the equipment are ensured, without depending on a minimum training of results from the laboratories that use the system.

This partnership is continuous, with each new control material produced, whether for use in external control or internal control, analyzes and valuations are carried out on the supplier’s equipment for canine, equine and feline (cat) breeders. In other words, the reference values ​​for this system are permanently included in the package insert of Controllab’s internal control programs.

The cooperation allows even more integration between the supplier, the client laboratory and Controllab, as the dynamics of the Collaborator Supplier Program favors the exchange of information.

“Applying quality tools in the analytical routine is essential to promote more accurate reports and, consequently, comply with the legal requirement”, explains Claudio Bastos, Controllab’s Services supervisor.

The Proficiency Testing or External Control periodically checks the accuracy of the results and the Internal Control monitors the analytical performance of the systems at each routine.

Mindray’s latest release for veterinary hematology, the BC 30 vet is a high-tech four-part hematology analyzer. It has separate counting channels for 13 species and 20 more programming possibilities according to customer needs. Practical and economical, it uses only two working reagents and has one of the simplest and most efficient maintenance on the market.

“Our equipment brings technology efficiently and simply to veterinary laboratories, by guaranteeing reference values ​​in quality control, we also bring more safety and prevention to analytical routines”, says Hércules Mousinho, Marketing Manager at Foco Vet.
