Accurate and sensitive diagnostics are necessary to confirm that laboratories are providing patients with proper testing results.
Utilizing ZeptoMetrix™ NATtrol™ Molecular Controls on a consistent basis helps to monitor testing performance and provides additional confidence in the quality and reliability of laboratory operations.
NATtrol™ (Nucleic Acid Testing Control) products are the industry’s preferred standard for molecular diagnostics testing and can be used as independent (third party) quality control materials. NATtrolTM products are prepared from purified microorganisms 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 non-infectious 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 (as applicable).
