NATtrol™ Infectious Disease Molecular Controls for Quality Control Testing
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. NATtrol™ products are prepared from purified microorganisms that are grown in either cell culture, microbial culture or isolated from the plasma of infected individuals.
Utilizing ZeptoMetrix® NATtrol™ Controls on a consistent basis helps to monitor testing performance and provides additional confidence in the quality and reliability of laboratory operations.
What really matters to your lab: Refrigerated ready-to-use + Non-infectious + Whole
microorganisms + Mimics a true clinical specimen.
- Can be used across various molecular testing platforms and assays
- Available in different formats (single or multiple analytes)
- Full process controls to monitor extraction and amplification steps
- Train and monitor laboratory personnel
- Evaluate lot-to-lot consistency of test kits and assay reagents
This product is intended for use as an internal process control for molecular diagnostic assays. Bacteriophage MS2 is a virus that infects Escherichia coli bacteria and other members of the Enterobacteria family. It has proven utility as an internal process control for rt-PCR assays. NATtrol inactivation of MS2 results in a refrigerator-stable, whole organism stock solution which shows increased reproducibility and lot-to-lot consistency over live MS2, making it an ideal internal control for rt-PCR assays.
