VIRAL TRANSPORT KIT (Double Nylon Flocked Swab)

Product Code TMVT 003

  • Description

    A Viral Transport kit is intended for the collection and transport of clinical specimens containing viruses, chlamydiae, mycoplasmas or ureaplasmas from the collection site to the testing laboratory. It is ready to use transport swab kit, designed to maintain viral viability and transport viruses in active form for isolation. The peculiar design of the flocked swab ensures optimal elution of the specimen into the transport medium. The viral transport medium contains essential buffers and antibiotics required for maintaining the viability of the viruses during transport. The medium is also recommended by CDC and WHO for collection and transport of Coronavirus.
    The kit comprises one Nasopharyngeal and one Oropharyngeal nylon flocked swab with breakpoints, and a tube of Viral Transport Medium. Swab 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 maximizes sensitivity of cell culture and molecular technique assay. Flexible plastic shaft delivers better patient comfort. Each swab has a molded breakpoint which allows the swab to be broken in to the tube.
