NATtrol Escherichia coli O157:H7; EDL933, External Run Control, Medium
NATtrol Escherichia coli External Run Controls (NATECO(933)-ERCL and NATECO(933)-ERCM) are formulated with purified, intact bacterial cells that have been chemically modified to render them non-infectious and refrigerator stable. Each control pack contains 6 x 1.0 mL vials of E. coli NATtrol at concentrations listed in Table 1. These controls are supplied in a purified protein matrix that mimics the composition of a true clinical specimen.
NATtrol Escherichia coli External Run Controls are designed to evaluate the performance of nucleic acid tests for determination of the presence of E. coli DNA. NATECO(933)-ERCL and NATECO(933)-ERCM can also be used for validation of clinical assays, development of diagnostic tests and training of laboratory personnel. NATECO(933)-ERCL and NATECO(933)-ERCM contain intact organisms and should be run in a manner identical to that used for clinical specimens.
