ZeptoMetrix®, a prominent player in the infectious disease diagnostics sector, is thrilled to introduce PROtrol TM, a groundbreaking range of products tailored for antigen-based diagnostic methods. These meticulously crafted third-party materials faithfully replicate genuine clinical specimens, serving as invaluable tools for evaluating and monitoring the performance of antigen-based assays, notably lateral flow immunoassays used in detecting infectious diseases.

Setting a new benchmark in the industry, PROtrol stands as the only reference material incorporating complete testing data. Every product lot is supplied with essential information such as protein concentration and TCID50 value, significantly reducing qualification testing requirements. By offering enhanced reproducibility, PROtrol optimizes resource allocation and processing time by minimizing the need for repeated testing.

Dr. Karuna Sharma, Vice President & Chief Scientific Officer, commented, “The rapid advancement of antigen-based assays has brought to light certain quality challenges. Inactivated, whole organism controls specifically designed for antigen tests empower manufacturers with the necessary tools to comprehensively assess the performance of their assays, resulting in higher-quality tests available to the market.”

The inaugural member of this product line is PROtrol SARS-Related Coronavirus 2 (SARS-CoV-2) Isolate: USA-WA1/2020* (PROSARS(COV2)-587). As we transcend the COVID-19 pandemic, ZeptoMetrix remains committed to expanding the PROtrol range, providing assay manufacturers with top-tier controls to facilitate the wider availability of affordable and user-friendly diagnostics.

Evangeline Gonzalez, President of Antylia Diagnostics division, remarked, “The launch and expansion of PROtrol bolster our position as the preferred partner for diagnostic test developers. As we collaborate with our diagnostic partners, ZeptoMetrix takes great pride in the role PROtrol plays in granting patients worldwide greater access to diagnostic testing.”
