Viral Transport Medium. Disposable Sampling Tube for PCR.
  • Goldsite


Viral Transport Media 


Intended Use 

Disposable Virus Sampling Tube is intended for the collection and transport of clinical specimens containing viruses from the collection site to the testing laboratory. The specimens collected and transported in Disposable Virus Sample Tube can be used for viral culture or other means of viral detection. 

For in vitro diagnostic use. 

For professional use. 

Viral Transport Media Types

There are two types, each are VTM non-inactivated and inactivated transport Media.

  • The VTM non-inactivated protects the proteins and nucleic acids of the virus.

  • The VTM inactivated usually contains the inactivated disease and the splitting salt of poison, splitting protein and protecting nucleic acid have their own characteristics and different application directions

VTM Viral Transport Media is applicable to COVID 19, influenza virus, hand, foot and mouth virus and other common virus samples collection, preservation and transportation.

It’s a liquid of a tested substance which protecting the virus. It usually use Pharyngeal swab Nasal swabs or tissue samples at specific place to collect samples.

Then the stored samples can be used in subsequent clinical trials such as nucleic acid extraction or purification.

Summary and Principles 

Rapid detection of viral infection is critical for clinical management and infection control. In order to perform testing, most molecular or antigen assays for measuring viral nucleic acids or antigens require obtaining a swab specimen, stabilizing and transporting of that specimen in a sampling tube from the collection site to testing sites. The preservation solution in the Disposable Virus Sampling Tube contains antibiotic and antifungal in Hanks solution to prevent bacterial and fungal contamination and growth. Stabilizer is also added to facility the preservation of viruses.
