Becoming more commonplace, the CDC lists Mycoplasma gentilium as an "emerging issue" and is increasingly recognized as an important cause of serval sexually transmitted infections (STIs). Despite its prevalence, however, the M. gentilium infection can be difficult to diagnose and treat.
The ZeptoMetrix® NATtrol™ Mycoplasma gentilium External Run Control is a full process control, multiplexed, molecular qualitative quality control that is designed to evaluate the performance of nucleic acid tests for determination of the presence of these organisms. The routine and repetitive use of ZeptoMetrix NATtrol™ External Run Controls and Verification Panels enables laboratories to monitor daily test variation, lot-to-lot test kit performance, individual operator performance and provides assistance identifying trends in laboratory results.
Dedicated to providing the molecular diagnostic market with the most current, reliable and precise non-infectious QC materials, ZeptoMetrix has utilized its patented NATtrol inactivation treatment to provide the following Mycoplasma gentilium External Run Control for molecular quality control:
