About NATtrol™
Globally, millions of people are tested for infectious diseases annually. The implications of reporting either a false positive or a false negative can be devastating to the patient. Accurate and sensitive diagnostics are necessary to confirm that laboratories are providing patients with proper testing results. Utilizing ZeptoMetrix NATtrol QC Materials on a consistent basis helps to monitor testing performance to maximize additional confidence in a patient’s reported results.

ZeptoMetrix NATtrol Molecular Diagnostic Products are an essential part of today’s fast growing market and are designed provide the safest, most accurate and cost effective support for critical microorganism detection. The ZeptoMetrix NATtrol treatment blocks surface protein receptors on highly purified microorganisms rendering them non-infectious while allowing the internal nucleic acids to remain intact for molecular detection. Mimicking a true, infected clinical specimen, these ready-to-use non-infectious products are safe to use and refrigerator stable while controlling for all steps in molecular testing including: centrifugation, extraction, amplification and nucleic acid detection.

Together, the routine and repetitive use of NATtrol™ External Run Controls and Range Verification Panels enables laboratories to verify test performance, track and monitor daily test variation, lot-to-lot test kit performance and individual operator performance to provide assistance identifying trends in laboratory results.
