Description

NATtrol Neisseria gonorrhoeae Positive Control Pack - 6 X 1.25 mL

INTENDED USE:

NATtrol™ Neisseria gonorrhoeae (NG) Positive Controls (MDZ003) consist of in vitro diagnostic external run controls intended for use with qualitative molecular assays. The routine and repetitive use of external run controls enables laboratories to monitor daily test variation, lot-to-lot test kit performance, individual operator variation, and can provide assistance in identifying increases in random or systemic error.

NATtrol™ NG Positive Controls contain intact organisms and should be run in a manner identical to that used for clinical specimens.

 

PRODUCT SUMMARY AND EXPLANATION:

NATtrol™ NG Positive Controls are formulated with purified, intact organisms that have been chemically modified to render them non- infectious and refrigerator stable*.

Each NATtrol™ NG Positive Control Pack contains 6 x 1.25 mL vials of NATtrolTM Neisseria gonorrhoeae formulated in a Purified Protein Matrix that is fully commutable with true clinical specimens.

PRINCIPLE:

The NG Positive Controls contain Neisseria gonorrhoeae cells inactivated by ZeptoMetrix’s patented NATtrol™ process formulated in a proprietary Purified Protein Matrix that mimics the composition of a true clinical specimen. These are full process controls designed to monitor the effectiveness of extraction, amplification, and detection in nucleic acid testing procedures. These controls are suitable for use in in-house molecular assays and commercially available platforms.

PRECAUTIONS:

Although the NATtrol™ NG Positive Controls contain inactivated microorganisms, handling and disposal should be conducted as if the material is potentially infectious.

This control contains material of human and animal origin and the user should observe Universal Precautions when handling and disposing of this product. Disposal must follow local regulations, if more stringent than regulations enforced by the CDC or the FDA.

Do not pipette by mouth.

To avoid cross-contamination, use separate transfer pipettes or tips for all materials.

Do not use beyond the expiration date shown on the label.

If product is received damaged or leaking, contact ZeptoMetrix LLC for instructions.

These products are NOT intended for use in the manufacture or processing of injectable products subject to licensure under the USA Food and Drug Administration Section 351 of the Public Health Service Act or for any other product intended for administration to humans.

RECOMMENDED STORAGE:

NATtrol™ NG Positive Controls should be stored at 2-8°C.

When stored as directed, controls are suitable for use for up to 56 days

(8 weeks) once opened.

INSTRUCTIONS FOR USE:

Vortex NATtrol™ NG Positive Control vials for 10 seconds to mix. Follow the manufacturer instructions for use as a clinical sample. LIMITATIONS:

NATtrol™ NG Positive Controls are USA FDA Class 1 exempt, unassayed, in vitro diagnostic external run controls and are intended for professional use only. NATtrol™ NG Positive Controls are not intended for use as a substitute for the internal controls provided by in vitro diagnostic kit manufacturers. Quality control materials should be used in accordance with local, state, federal and accreditation requirements.

EXPECTED RESULTS:

One lot of NATtrol™ NG Positive Control was tested in two separate labs on two different assays. Qualitative results are shown in Table 1.

Each laboratory must evaluate the controls and establish their own acceptance criteria.

ETIOLOGIC STATUS/BIOHAZARD TESTING:

NATtrol™ inactivation was completed on the stocks used to formulate each control and further verified by the absence of bacterial growth in a validated growth protocol.

The Purified Protein Matrix used in the manufacture of this product is treated with 0.09% sodium azide. It was manufactured from materials that have been tested and found non-reactive at the donor level for HIV-1/HIV-2 Antibody, HBsAg and HCV Antibody by FDA licensed donor screening test methods. All materials are also tested for HIV-1 and HCV by FDA approved Nucleic Acid Test (NAT) methods. Heat inactivated bovine based source materials used in the manufacture of this product meet applicable USDA requirements for abattoir sourced animals, traceability and country of origin. The materials were collected at USDA licensed establishments or legally imported from countries recognized by the USDA as negligible or controlled for risk for Bovine Spongiform Encephalopathy (BSE) and other exotic disease agents. Donor animals were inspected ante and post mortem at the abattoir as required by the USDA.
