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.


Intended Use

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.
