Virus Activated Collection & Transport Tube (VTM)

The Virus Activated Collection & Transport Tube (VTM) transports patient specimens of nasal and throat mucus from patients who will be swab tested, to a laboratory where further testing of the Covid-19 virus is active in the RT-PCR machine. This transport medium will optimally maintain the viability and virulence of the virus samples.

The swab uses a special medical Nylon Dacron as the raw material to maximize sampling.

The sample can be used for RNA extraction and the COVID-19 virus detection in PCR machines and can be widely used in virus genetic testing.
