NATtrol™ Clostridium difficile Negative Control (IVD)MDZ041
NATtrol™ Clostridium difficile Negative Control (MDZ041) is an in vitro, diagnostic external run control intended for use in evaluating and monitoring of qualitative molecular diagnostic assays for the detection of Clostridium difficile nucleic acid. The routine and repetitive use of external run controls enables laboratories to monitor daily test variation, lot-to-lot test kit performance, individual operator variation, and can provide assistance in identifying increases in random or systemic error. NATtrol™ Clostridium difficile Negative Control contains intact bacterium and should be run in a manner identical to that used for clinical specimens.
