Coronavirus Control Products

AB Scientific continue to lead the way in 3rd party molecular controls.

Available Now! In response to the current COVID-19 global health emergency, our partners ZeptoMetrix™ Corporation and Microbiologics Inc have both announced the development and release of a SARS-CoV-2 quality control.

Zeptometrix Logo

Zeptometrix have announced the development and release of a SARS-CoV-2 recombinant construct – NATtrol™ SARS-CoV-2 (recombinant) product code 0831042.

This non-infectious quality control incorporates a recombinant construct associated with targeted detection regions of the virus which may be utilized in the development of molecular assays designed to detect SARS-CoV-2 as well as safely utilized in BSL-2 facilities in place of the live virus, as non-infectious, external quality controls for assays developed to detect SARS-CoV-2.

As the health risk posed by COVID-19 sees prolific daily growth, the CDC recommendations for infection prevention and control is evolving quickly. As with Zika, MERS, H1N1, and SARS, ZeptoMetrix is uniquely positioned to assist its partners and customers with an array of quality controls, research reagents, developmental tools and scientific expertise during our present emergency.

It is imperative for overall public health that our ID community better understand SARS-CoV-2. ZeptoMetrix has made it a priority to provide clinical laboratories, assay developers, manufacturers, researchers and healthcare workers alike with equal access to its extensive collection of coronavirus products.

ZeptoMetrix is presently in production of additional SARS-CoV-2 research materials and controls to assist in the rapid development of diagnostic tests and provide safe options for intact, non-infectious QC materials. Please visit our website and review upcoming press releases with regards to SARS-CoV-2 Lysate, SARS-CoV-2 Heat Inactivated Culture Fluid and NATtrol™ SARS-CoV-2.
