This page suggests no: http://www.rinkworks.com/words/pangrams.shtml, unless you want to include acronyms and the like.

Constructing a sentence that uses every letter of the alphabet once and no more -- essentially an anagram of the alphabet -- seems to require the use of acronyms, initials, and strange punctuation. The most interesting I've seen is, "Glum Schwartzkopf vex'd by NJ IQ."
