NATtrol™ MRSA/SA Negative Control (IVD)MDZ060
NATtrol™ Methicillin-Resistant Staphylococcus aureus/ Staphylococcus aureus (MRSA/SA) Negative Control (MDZ060) is an in vitro diagnostic external run control intended for use in evaluating and monitoring of qualitative molecular diagnostic assays for the detection of MRSA 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™ MRSA/SA Negative Control contains intact bacterium and should be run in a manner identical to that used for clinical specimens.
