ZeptoMetrix® is thrilled to present PROtrol TM, an innovative range of products catered to antigen-based diagnostic methods. These meticulously crafted materials serve as third-party references, closely mimicking genuine clinical specimens. They enable the evaluation and monitoring of the performance of antigen-based assays, specifically lateral flow immunoassays for detecting infectious diseases.
PROtrol stands out as the sole whole organism reference material that provides comprehensive testing data. Each product lot is accompanied by precise protein concentration and TCID50 value, significantly reducing the need for extensive qualification testing. This heightened reproducibility not only optimizes financial resources but also streamlines processing time by minimizing the requirement for repetitive testing.
Dr. Karuna Sharma, Vice President & Chief Scientific Officer, commented, “The rapid growth of antigen-based assays has underscored the importance of addressing quality challenges. Inactivated, whole organism controls designed specifically for antigen tests empower manufacturers with the necessary tools to assess the performance of their assays, ultimately resulting in higher-quality tests available in the market.”
The inaugural member of the PROtrol product line is PROtrol SARS-Related Coronavirus 2 (SARS-CoV-2) Isolate: USA-WA1/2020* (PROSARS(COV2)-587). ZeptoMetrix envisions expanding the PROtrol line further as we progress beyond the COVID-19 pandemic. This expansion aims to offer assay manufacturers exceptional control materials, enabling the development of affordable and user-friendly diagnostics that enhance accessibility.
Evangeline Gonzalez, President of the Antylia Diagnostics division, remarked, “The launch and expansion of PROtrol strengthen our position as the preferred partner for diagnostic test developers. As we collaborate with our diagnostic partners, ZeptoMetrix takes pride in the role PROtrol plays in providing patients worldwide with greater access to diagnostic testing.”
