Infectious diseases are no match for ZeptoMetrix® Molecular Controls

ZeptoMetrix NATtrol™ is the most trusted brand in third-party molecular diagnostic QC for infectious disease testing.

Utilizing ZeptoMetrix NATtrol molecular controls on a consistent basis helps to monitor testing performance and provides additional confidence in the quality and reliability of clinical laboratory operations.

Our controls are refrigerated, ready-to-use, and formulated with purified, intact organisms that mimic a true clinical specimen.

The NATtrol™ treatment modifies the surface proteins and renders the organisms non-infectious and refrigerator stable, while retaining the complete genome. The inactivation of organisms is verified by absence of growth in either validated tissue culture-based infectivity assays or in validated growth protocols (as applicable)

  • Non-infectious and refrigerator stable
  • Mimics a true patient sample
  • Purified, intact, non-synthetic whole organisms
  • Full process controls to monitor extraction and amplification steps
  • Available in different formats (single or multiple analytes)
  • Can be used across various molecular testing platforms and assays
  • Traceable to WHO International Standards (where available)
  • 12-24 months shelf life
  • Broad patent coverage* and/or pending patents

Frequent use of NATtrol™ Controls may be used to:

  • Train and monitor laboratory personnel
  • Evaluate lot-to-lot consistency of test kits and assay reagents
  • Monitor daily variations in reported results
  • Provide unbiased, independent testing proficiency Assessment
  • Provide consistent, reliable and accurate Quality Control solutions
  • Assist in identifying laboratory trends
