Date:3/10/2020

In response to the current COVID-19 global health emergency, ZeptoMetrix™ Corporation (ZMC) announced today the development and release of a SARS-CoV-2 recombinant construct - NATtrol™ SARS-CoV-2 (recombinant) Stock - 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.

“As we’ve learned, you always need the right tools for the right job” explains Shawn R. Smith, President of ZeptoMetrix, “…and our comprehensive availability of off-the-shelf coronavirus products helps provide the Infectious Disease diagnostics community with as many precise and dependable tools as possible. At present, it is critical for ZeptoMetrix to be able to quickly provide a commercial solution for a non-infectious SARS-CoV-2 quality control for safe use by diagnostic test developers.”

“In conjunction with our existing and ever growing product listing, I am proud in our Team’s ability to meet today’s challenges and positively impact public health efforts in any manner we can.”

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.
