Vernon Hills, Ill — ZeptoMetrix®, an Antylia Scientific™ company, today adds another crucial molecular quality control to its expansive line of Infectious Disease NATtrol™ Quality Controls. Now available for use in laboratories, hospitals, clinics, and research facilities, the SARS-CoV-2 Variant Panel (NATSARS(COV2)-VP) includes four separate, individual vials of the Alpha, Beta, Gamma, and Delta variants. Each vial is targeted at 50,000 copies/mL.

“Our scientists work closely with our manufacturing, commercial and governmental agency partners to ensure we align ourselves with the most accurate and up-to-date information available to provide the industry and public with novel, dependable, and reliable quality control products,” said Evangeline Gonzalez, Vice President/General Manager of ZeptoMetrix. “When we understood a new Delta variant of SARS-CoV-2 was more contagious and spread faster than earlier forms of the virus, we immediately responded by developing these latest non-infectious, quality controls.”

SARS-CoV-2 Variant Panel (NATSARS(COV2)-VP) is a decisive part of the testing process. Using ZeptoMetrix External Run Controls and Verification Panels on a consistent basis helps to maximize additional confidence in test results.

As with this latest Delta Variant Panel, all ZeptoMetrix NATtrol quality controls undergo a process that renders highly purified microorganisms non-infectious while allowing the internal nucleic acids to remain intact. The resulting product is an ideal reference material for molecular diagnostic testing applications. Representing a total process control, from DNA extraction through amplification and eventual detection, NATtrol products are ready-to-use, refrigerator stable, and safe for operators to handle. The routine and repetitive use of NATtrol external run controls and verification panels help scientists monitor performance and identify trends in daily test variations, test kit lot changes, and variations among individual operators.
