Custom Controls & Standards

Get controls that integrate easily into your assay.

Argonaut Manufacturing Services produces your custom controls and standards with the quality and precision you expect. Designed for regulated markets and LDT assays, and available for Life Sciences, we make custom quality controls that span the product cycle from development through end-user run controls. Examples include positive controls, full-process controls, instrumentation, regulatory standards, and synthetic nucleic acids for purification, amplification, and detection.

Your team can also leverage Argonaut’s core skills to lyophilize your controls. Lyophilized controls can have longer stability, provide simpler end-user protocols, and easy logistics by removing cold-chain requirements.
