NATtrol CT/NG External Run Controls
For determination of the presence of Chlamydia trachomatis and Neisseria gonorrhoeae DNA.
External run controls formulated with purified, intact and chemically modified organisms. Non infectious and refrigerator stable. Designed as full process extraction and amplification controls to validate molecular testing. Supplied in purified protein matrix that mimics composition of true clinical specimen. Evaluates performance of nucleic acid test6 x 1ml vials (each control).
NATtrol Human Hepatitis C Virus
Ideal control for all steps of amplification assays.
Source material is human. Prepared from highly purified viruses. Viral particles are treated chemically and enzymatically treated to alter its surface proteins and unable to bind, penetrate or infect host cell. Retains complete viral genome in its core.
NATtrol Influenza B External Run Controls
Formulated with purified, intact chemically modified virus particles to render them non-infectious and refrigerator stable.
Each control pack contains 6 x 1.0mL vials of Influenza B NATtrol™ at concentrations of 25 to 31 Ct Range. Supplied in purified protein matrix identical to the composition of true clinical specimen. Designed to evaluate performance of nucleic acid tests for determination of presence of Influenza B RNA.
About ZeptoMetrix Corporation
A Superior Standard for Molecular Diagnostics
ZeptoMetrix™ NATtrol™ products are the industry's superior standard for molecular testing and can be used as independent quality control materials. NATtrol™ products are prepared from purified micro-organisms that are grown in either cell culture, microbial culture or isolated from the plasma of infected individuals.
The NATtrol™ treatment modifies the surface proteins and renders the organisms noninfectious and refrigerator stable, while retaining the complete genome. The inactivation of organisms is verified by absence of growth in either validated tissue culture based infectivity assays or in validated growth protocols, where applicable.
Key features include:
- Noninfectious and refrigerator stable
- Purified, intact organisms
- Full process controls to monitor extraction and amplification steps
- Available in different formats (single or multiple analytes)
- Can be used across various molecular testing platforms and assays
- Commutable with serum, plasma and other biological fluids
NATtrol™ panels and controls can be used to:
- Train laboratory personnel
- Validate and verify molecular diagnostic assays
- Monitor and evaluate lot-to-lot consistency of assay reagents
ZeptoMetrix™ manufactures and provides an extensive range of controls and calibrators for serological assays and NAT. Its patented NATtrol™ products exceed current NAT standards and set an unparalleled benchmark in molecular testing. Prepared from highly purified viruses and treated to alter surface proteins, NATtrol™ products allow the viral nucleic acid to remain intact for testing. NATtrol™ products are noninfectious, refrigerator stable, control for all steps in NAT including centrifugation, extraction, amplification and detection and work cohesively with all amplification assay formats.
United States clinical laboratories are required to follow federal regulations established by CLIA when validating IVD assays. This ensures optimal laboratory practices and accuracy of test results before clinical application and ensures continued quality practices and results once the test is run clinically.
