Recently Cole-Parmer Acquired ZeptoMetrix Corporation

ZeptoMetrix is a life sciences developer and manufacturer of quality control standards and verification panels used in molecular diagnostic testing for infectious diseases.

Founded in 1999 and headquartered in Buffalo, NY, ZeptoMetrix's products, including its patented NATtrol™ family of products, are used for nucleic acid testing within the diagnostic testing industry. These products are used regularly by clinical testing labs to verify that molecular diagnostic instruments are performing and accurately detecting the presence of specific genetic material within a patient sample. The ZeptoMetrix product portfolio is focused on infectious disease, including gastrointestinal, women's health, hospital acquired infections, and respiratory, including the flu, RSV and Covid, among others.
