COVID-19: Viral Transport Medium (VTM) for Diagnosis

The success of diagnosis of SARS-CoV-2 (2019-nCoV) during the COVID-19 outbreak largely depends on the quality of the sample and the conditions under which the sample is transported and stored before being processed in the laboratory.

Viral transport medium (VTM) allows the safe transfer of viruses, chlamydia and mycoplasma for further research, which includes conventional cell culture methods, clinical trials, and molecular biology techniques.

Commercially prepared viral transport media are available in screw cap plastic tubes containing buffered proteins (serum, albumin or gelatin) and antibiotics. Antibiotics are commonly included in viral transport media to suppress the growth of contaminating bacteria and fungi, so if bacterial or fungal cultures are also requested, separate samples should be collected from the same site.

  1. Our viral transport medium is based on Hanks Balanced Salt Solution (HBSS) with calcium and magnesium and contains heat-inactivated fetal bovine serum, gentamicin and amphotericin B. The composition and construction of the viral transport medium follow WHO and CDC recommendations.
  2. The product is provided as a liquid in a sterile 13 mL flat bottom tube, with or without a swab, to provide the maximum range of sample collection possibilities.

VTM is available in 2 formats: without and with swab.
