NATtrol Strep A Positive Control
NATtrol Strep A External Run Controls (P/N NATSPY6MC & NATSDG-6MC) 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 0.5 mL vials of NATtrol S. pyogenes or NATtrol S. dysgalactiae as listed in Table 1. These controls are supplied in a purified protein matrix that mimics the composition of a true clinical specimen.
NATtrol Strep A External controls are full process controls designed to evaluate the performance of nucleic acid tests for determination of the presence Streptococcus pyogenes DNA. NATSPY-6MC & NATSDG-6MC can also be used for quality control of clinical assays and training of laboratory personnel. NATSPY-6MC & NATSDG-6MC contains intact organisms and should be run in a manner identical to that used for clinical specimens.
