CLEAR & SURE TRANSPORT (VTM) KIT
Recombigen Viral TransportKit is a specially designed transport system to collect and transport virusesin an active form to the laboratory for isolation. It is designed to maintainthe viability and the virulence of the viral sample. Viral Transport Medium ismade of Hanks Balanced Salt Solution and contains a protective protein,antibiotics to control microbial and fungal contamination and buffers tocontrol the pH. Phenol red is used as a pH indicator. The medium also containsa cryoprotectant which helps in preserving the viruses if specimens are frozenfor prolonged storage. The flocked nylon swab has a short perpendicularultraflexible plastic shaft that is designed for better patient comfort. Thisplastic shaft is attached with soft nylon strands that results in efficientcollection and release of particulate matter. It yields significantly moresample which helps in maximizing the sensitivity of serological and moleculardetection assays. This swab has a molded breakpoint which allows the swab to bebroken in to the tube. The viscose swab is a tipped swab on a polypropyleneshaft, which can be used for collecting throat samples.
