NATtrol HIV1 External Run Control, Medium
NATtrol HIV-1 External Run Controls are designed to evaluate the performance of nucleic acid tests for determination of the presence of HIV-1 RNA. NATHIV1-ERCL and NATHIV1-ERCM can also be used for validation of clinical assays, development of diagnostic tests and training of laboratory personnel. NATHIV1-ERCL and NATHIV1-ERCM contain intact virus and should be run in a manner identical to that used for clinical specimens.
NATtrol HIV-1 External Run Controls (NATHIV1ERCL and NATHIV1-ERCM) are formulated with purified, intact virus particles that have been chemically modified to render them non-infectious and refrigerator stable. Each control pack contains 6 x 1.0 mL vials of HIV-1 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.
