ZeptoMetrix external quality controls and verification panels have demonstrated performance on a variety of molecular platforms. Based upon the platform and assay’s product configuration, including but not limited to fill volumes and concentrations of analytes, we recommend our NATtrol BCID Panel to be used in conjunction with the BioFire® FilmArray® system.
NATtrol BCID Panel includes 22 targets: Acinetobacter baumannii strain 307-0294, Candida albicans strain Z006, Candida glabrata strain Z007, Candida krusei strain Z009, Candida parapsilosis strain Z011, Candida tropicalis strain Z012, Enterobacter cloacae strain Z101, Enterococcus faecalis strain VRE; Z345; vanB, Escherichia coli strain ETEC, ST+, LT+, Haemophilus influenzae strain MinnA, Klebsiella oxytoca strain Z115, Klebsiella pneumoniae strain KPC-2, Listeria monocytogenes strain Serotype 1/2b, Neisseria meningitidis strain Serogroup A, Proteus mirabilis strain Z050, Pseudomonas aeruginosa strain Z139, VIM-1, Serratia marcescens strain Z053, Staphylococcus aureus strain MRSA; COL, Staphylococcus epidermidis strain MSSE; HER 1292, Streptococcus agalactiae strain Z053, Streptococcus pneumoniae strain Z022, and Streptococcus pyogenes strain Z018.

This product is not intended to replace the manufacturer's controls provided with the assay. Propagation or commercialization are prohibited without prior written consent from Antylia Scientific.
When used as a control for nucleic acid tests, the same protocols as those used to amplify extracted clinical specimens should be employed.
The suitability and performance characteristics should be determined by your laboratory for each intended usage.
NATtrol products are ready-to-use, inactivated full process controls designed to evaluate performance of molecular tests. They can be used for verification of assays, training of laboratory personnel and to monitor assay-kit lot performance. NATtrol products contain intact organisms and should be run in a manner similar to clinical specimens.
