At ZeptoMetrix, we’ve always understood that research success requires a team approach. That is why our Mission to be “a Partner to Our Customer” remains the focal point as we, together with our Partners, change the global infectious disease diagnostic industry for the better. Today, we proudly provide our Partners with a variety of innovative and trusted products and services.
Our People: The heart of our company is the ZeptoMetrix Team, which is represented by the best and brightest in our industry. From our highly skilled and ground-breaking scientific team to the experienced and dedicated members of our Manufacturing and Distribution groups, ZeptoMetrix is focused on delivering unparalleled quality and consistency in our products and services. Together, we look to lead, build, and establishing new standards for the global good.
Our Products: ZeptoMetrix manufactures and provides an extensive range of quality controls and calibrators for serological and antigen-based assays and Nucleic Acid Testing (NAT). Products that are treated with our exclusive patented NATtrol™ process exceed industry standards for NAT, setting an unparalleled benchmark in the diagnostic products industry. NATtrol products originate with highly purified microorganisms which are processed to alter surface proteins, resulting in products that are in an optimal state for research and testing: with completely intact nucleic acid. NATtrol products are non-infectious and refrigerator stable, work cohesively with all Amplification Assay Formats, and can be used as controls for all steps in NAT, including centrifuging, extraction, amplification, and detection.
ZeptoMetrix is renowned worldwide for developing and manufacturing diagnostic assays and panels, such as our ELISA Kits and HIV p24 Ag, Western Blots, Oxidative Stress Kits, Marketing & Proficiency Panels, and Quality Control Panels. We house one of the world’s largest commercial archives – over one million specimens – of clinically defined, physician diagnosed, and remnant samples from chronic and acute disease states. We also stock highly characterized seroconversion panels from HIV, HBV, and HCV infected Individuals. Many of our microorganism specimens are accompanied with clinical data and testing results, and are commercially available to the infectious disease diagnostic industry for research and assay development. ZeptoMetrix is also leader in large scale virus purification and viral lysate production. With two Bio Safety Level 3 Laboratories, ZeptoMetrix is able to specifically custom manufacture virtually any culturable microorganism in a highly purified form.
Our Services: Our Analytical Services department provides testing services for customers to support research and development, marketing initiatives, or regulatory submissions for their products. In addition to testing for analytical specificity, cross reactivity, interference, reproducibility, and precision, ZeptoMetrix can also source, acquire, and culture all required organisms, assemble panels for testing in accordance with specifications, and provide the controls needed for accurate testing results.
Our Facilities: ZeptoMetrix operates from three state-of-the-art facilities. Our corporate headquarters, located in Buffalo, New York, on the Buffalo-Niagara Medical Campus, boasts two Bio Safety Level 3 laboratories, and is home to our research and development group and the Analytical Testing Services team.
