NATtrol GI Controls
NATtrol GI Controls (NATGIC-BIO) are formulated with purified, intact virus partricles and bacterial cells that have been chemically modified to render them non-infectious and refrigerator stable. NATGIC-BIO contains 6 x 0.2 mL vials of GI Control 1 and 6 x 0.2 mL vials of GI Control 2. NATtrolTM GI Controls are supplied in a Stool Diluent that mimics the composition of a true clinical specimen. Table 1 lists the GI targets and expected results when tested on FilmArray GI assay.
NATtrol GI Panel is designed to evaluate the performance of nucleic acid tests for determination of the presence of viral and bacterial nucleic acids. NATGIC-BIO can also be used for verification of clinical assays, development of diagnostic tests and training of laboratory personnel. NATGIC-BIO contains intact organisms and should be run in a manner identical to that used for clinical specimens.
Platform : BioFire FilmArray ; Test : GI / +2° to +8° C.
