Product Code MTM 002
Molecular Transport Kit is intended for the safe collection, stabilization, transportation and inactivation of infectious of viral agents from the collection site to the testing laboratory. This ready to use kit contains a Molecular Transport Medium (Viral Lysis Transport Medium) and one nasopharyngeal nylon flocked swab with breakpoint & one Oropharyngeal viscose throat swab without breakpoint. The peculiar design of the flocked swab ensures optimal elution of the specimen into the transport medium.
Molecular Transport Medium (Viral Lysis Transport Medium) is a self-contained, ready-to-use system designed for stabilization, inactivation and transportation of potentially infectious, unprocessed nasal and throat swab samples suspected of containing infectious viruses. It is designed to kill the viruses whilst preserving the released intact nucleic acids for molecular diagnostics. The composition of the medium has been optimized in such a way that it disturbs/lyse lipid membranes, destroy proteins including enzymes and nucleases which helps in keeping the naked RNA stable and well preserved within the sample.
Molecular Transport Medium (Viral Lysis Transport Medium) makes the sample safe for transportation, shipment and processing at ambient temperature and allows accurate detection of microbial DNA/RNA using molecular method. Unlike traditional transport medium, molecular transport medium do not keep the viruses viable, rather only maintain the integrity of viral genome. This leads to improved test performance with better turn-around time, sensitivity, specificity, precision and reproducibility as compared to traditional tests. Moreover, considering potential infectivity of the suspected samples and risk involved in handling them during collection and transport, sample inactivation is desired for ensuring safety. This kit has been customized for inactivation of potentially infectious biological pathogens ensuring safety during handling, transport and processing. Thereby, assuring safe and risk-free handling of suspected samples.
The Swab provided, contains short perpendicular nylon fiber strands attached to flexible molded plastic that results in efficient collection and release of particular matter. The flocked specimen yields more sample which helps to maximize sensitivity of cell culture and molecular technique assay.
Flexible plastic shaft delivers better patient comfort. The nylon nasopharyngeal swab has a molded breakpoint which allows the swab to be broken in to the tube and viscose swab is a tipped swab on a polypropylene shaft, which can be used for collecting throat samples. It does not have a breakpoint.
w/ 3 ml Molecular Transport Medium (Viral Lysis Transport Medium) in 10-15 ml polypropylene tube, one Nasopharyngeal nylon flocked swab with breakpoint & one Oropharyngeal viscose throat swab without breakpoint
