QC Microorganisms For Culture Purposes and Quality Control Applications

LYFO DISK® is a lyophilized pellet containing a single strain of a QC microorganism and is the most economical reference stock culture option. LYFO DISK® is known for its ease-of-use; simply re-hydrate the pellet and inoculate. LYFO DISK® is available in a re-sealable vial containing 6 pellets of a single QC microorganism strain.

QC Microorganisms For Culture Purposes and Quality Control Applications

The KWIK-STIK™ is well-known for its clever design and accurate, repeatable results. Each KWIK-STIK™ device features a single QC microorganism strain in a lyophilized pellet, a reservoir of hydrating fluid, and an inoculating swab. For added convenience, a peel-off identification label is included for easy documentation. The KWIK-STIK™ is available in packs of 2 or 6.

QC Sets and Panels

Commercial and Miscellaneous QC Microorganism Sets

Commercial Sets offered by Microbiologics contain the manufacturer recommended quality control strains for bacterial identification systems (e.g., Vitek®) and bacterial detection products (e.g., Readycult®). Miscellaneous Sets offered by Microbiologics include the quality control strains required by CLSI for sensitivity testing, and appropriate microorganism groupings for a wide selection of additional quality control tests. Ordering QC microorganisms in sets simplifies the ordering process. QC Microorganism Sets are available for many instruments including:

•Vitek® and Vitek® 2
•BD BBL™ Crystal™, Phoenix™ and GeneOhm™
•Cepheid® Smart Cycler® and GeneXpert®
•Roche LightCycler®
•And Many More!
Choose from three convenient packaging options:
1. LYFO DISK® (vial of 6 lyophilized pellets of each single QC microorganism)
2. KWIK-STIK™ 2 Pack (2 STIKS of each single QC microorganism)
3. KWIK-STIK™ 6 Pack (6 STIKS of each single QC microorganism)

Helix Elite™ Molecular Standards

Designed for validation, verification, proficiency testing and quality control of molecular instruments and assays, Helix Elite™ Molecular Standards are available in a variety of user-friendly formats. These specialized biological controls support molecular technology developers and users in meeting regulatory requirements and providing confidence in their test accuracy.

•Non-hazardous, safe to handle
•Stabilized for room temperature storage
•Optimized for time and labor savings
•Used for verification, validation and quality control
•Independent external controls provide accurate, reliable results


Inactivated Helix Elite Molecular Standards are fully intact, non-viable process controls which are FDA listed and CE Marked as an In-Vitro Diagnostic (IVD) Medical Device. The quick dissolving lyophilized pellets may be reconstituted in buffer or transport medium and then processed using the same protocols as the patient sample.


Synthetic Helix Elite Molecular Standards are specifically designed and synthetic nucleic acid RNA and DNA sequences which are designed for use as amplification controls in clinical assays. Each standard contains consensus sequences of diagnostic regions from the target’s genome and represents the known genetic diversity of the microorganism.


Genomic Extract Helix Elite Molecular Standards are dried, stabilized and quantitated nucleic acid extracted from target pathogens. Used as a positive control for the amplification and detection steps in molecular assays, each preparation is assessed for purity, integrity and provided with a gene copy number for quantitation.

Company details

Microbiologics, originally named Environmental Protection Laboratories, was founded in 1971. Headquartered in St. Cloud, Minnesota, we provided laboratory testing services for detecting microbial contamination of water sources, the environment and food products. In 1976, the company began manufacturing microbiological diagnostic products including culture media and lyophilized microorganism preparations. Soon after, we began building a global distribution network that allowed us to expand from a small, regional manufacturer to a well-established global leader in providing the highest quality biomaterials for a safer, healthier world.Today, Microbiologics offers the largest and most diverse line of ready-to-use quality control microorganisms, which are sourced from the world's leading culture collections, packaged in convenient and valuable formats and expediently delivered throughout the world. We specialize in producing lyophilized QC microorganisms for use in the clinical, pharmaceutical, cosmetic, dietary supplement, food, water, environmental and educational industries. Each of our QC microorganism products is supported by the highest quality credentials in the industry, so when you buy from Microbiologics you know you're receiving the best products and unsurpassed service and support.
