Viral transport tube with Flocked Swab
The Virus Sampling Kit is base on Hank’s balanced salt solution. The solution contains inorganic salts, amino acids, and protein-stable ingredients. The VTM has a stable osmotic pressure, which provides an appropriate transport and storage environment for swab samples. Specimens collected with nasopharyngeal or oropharynx swabs are sent to the laboratory for follow-up testing to determine whether been infected with some kinds of viruses.
