Consistent and High-Quality Outcomes
Positive controls play a pivotal role in ensuring quality across a spectrum of applications, spanning from the development of diagnostic assays to routine testing. This extends to validating and verifying diagnostic tests for both next-generation sequencing (NGS) and reverse transcription polymerase chain reaction (RT-PCR) assays.
A Secure and Efficient Alternative to “Live Virus”
Controls relying on viral nucleic acids extracted from infected patients or live virus cultures present inherent safety and security issues. Synthetic controls, crafted through gene synthesis, not only expand accessibility across diverse strains but also mitigate associated risks.
Adaptable Formats Tailored to Your Needs
Select from Standard, Assay Ready, or Encapsulated Control formulations. The Standard format delivers controls in a high-concentration frozen liquid formulation. Assay Ready Controls come as a dried pellet, enhancing stability. Leveraging a metal capsule sealed around a desiccated pellet, The Encapsulated Control products provide added stability to RNA controls, akin to protein encapsulation for viruses.
Both Assay Ready and Encapsulated formulations are designed for single-use. The Assay Ready format facilitates shipping at ambient temperatures and storage in standard freezers. Enhanced stability in Encapsulated controls translates to an extended shelf life, allowing for room temperature shipping and storage, thus reducing costs and increasing accessibility globally.
