NATtrol Norovirus GI/GII Positive Control
- Cepheid® GeneXpert® Platform
NATtrol™ Norovirus GI/GII Positive Control (MDZ049) is an in vitro diagnostic external run control intended for use in evaluating and monitoring of qualitative molecular diagnostic assays for the detection of Norovirus GI/GII nucleic acid. 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. The NATtrol™ Norovirus GI/GII Positive Control contains intact organisms and should be run in a manner identical to that used for clinical specimens.
NATtrol™ Norovirus External Run Controls (NATNOVI-6MC, NATNOVII-6MC, NATNOV-6MC and NATROTA-6MC)* are formulated with purified, intact virus particles that have been chemically modified to render them non-infectious and refrigerator stable. Each control contains 6 x 0.125 mL vials of NATtrol™ Norovirus GI, NATtrol™ Norovirus GII, a blend of NATtrol Norovirus GI/GII or NATtrolTM Rotavirus. These controls aresupplied in a purified protein matrix that mimics the composition ofa true clinical specimen.
