- 3ml Viral Transport Medium with, Two Sterile Flocked Nylon Swab with Breakpoint.
Recombigen Viral Transport Kit is a specially designed transport system to collect and transport viruses in an active form to the laboratory for isolation. It is designed to maintain the viability and virulence of the viral sample. Viral Transport Medium is made of Hanks Balanced Salt Solution and contains a protective protein, antibiotics to control microbial and fungal contamination, and buffers to control the pH. Phenol red is used as a pH indicator. The medium also contains a cryoprotectant which helps in preserving the viruses if specimens are frozen for prolonged storage. The flocked nylon swab has a short perpendicular ultra-flexible plastic shaft that is designed for better patient comfort. This plastic shaft is attached with soft nylon strands that result in efficient collection and release of particulate matter. It yields significantly more samples which help in maximizing the sensitivity of serological and molecular detection assays. This swab has a molded breakpoint which allows the swab to be broken into the tube. The viscose swab is a tipped swab on a polypropylene shaft, which can be used for collecting throat samples.
