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 GI Controls to be used in conjunction with the BioFire® FilmArray® system.
NATtrol GI Control 1 includes Clostridium difficile strain NAP1; Plesiomonas shigelloides strain Z130; Vibrio cholera strain Z133, nontoxigenic; Yersinia enterocolitica clinical isolate; Escherichia coli strains 92.0147, EAEC; Shigella sonnei strain Z004; Escherichia coli strains EDL933, O157; Crytosporidium parvum strain Iowa; Adenovirus Type 41 strain TAK; Sapovirus Recombinant†; and Rotavirus strain Wa.
NATtrol GI Control 2 includes Campylobacter coli clinical isolate; Campylobacter jejuni clinical isolate; Salmonella enterica typhimurium strain Z005; Escherichia coli strains 7.1493, O84:H28, EPEC; Escherichia coli strains ETEC; ST+, LT+; Cyclospora cayetanensis Recombinant; Entamoeba histolytica strain DS4-868; Giardia lamblia strain H3; Astrovirus Recombinant; Norovirus GI Recombinant; and Norovirus GII Recombinant.

For Research Use Only. Not for use in diagnostic procedures. Quality control materials should be used in accordance with local, state, federal, and accreditation requirements. 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.
