* COVID-19 Viral Transportation Media
(UCVTM) is formulated base on CDC recommendation. Universal
Room temperature stable system maintains the viability of organisms for up to 48 hours and
does not require refrigeration storage prior to collection Universal COVID-19
Viral Transport Media (UCVTM) has been tested and validated in full
compliance with CLSI M40-A2: Quality Control of Microbiological Transport
been used successfully for Rapid Antigen Testing, DFA, Viral Culture and for Molecular-Based
Assays. Unique media formulation includes antibiotics to inhibit bacterial and
fungal growth, without affecting viruses, chlamydia, mycoplasma, or ureaplasma.
Universal Viral transport medium (UCVTM) prevents specimen drying, maintains
viral viability, and retards the growth of microbial contaminants. Regeneration
Biology virology lab requires specimens for virus culture to be collected in
the UCVTM. Tubes containing 2-3 mL UCVTM
are used for swab specimens, while those with 5-7 mL VTM are suitable for
- 1pc Transport Medium
sampling tube with 3ml UCVTM liquid.
- 1pc Nasal flocked
No swabs include swab or throat swab.
Universal COVID-19 Viral
Transportation Medium is a prepared Liquid Culture Media that is packaged in a
15 Tubes. Viral Transport Medium VTM, 3ml fill, Swabs sold separately, order by
the package of 20.
Intended use: Viral Transport Medium is recommended for the collection and
transport of specimens for the recovery of viral agents including, but not
limited to, COVID-19, Herpes Simplex Type I, Herpes Simplex Type II,
Cytomegalovirus (CMV), Influenza A, Influenza B, Respiratory Syncytial Virus
(RSV), Echovirus, Adenovirus, etc.
Types of swabs that can be used:
Mini tip for Nasopharyngeal
The standard tip for oropharyngeal
Dacron, Rayon, or synthetic flocked swabs are acceptable
Nasopharyngeal swabs: Insert the swab into the nostril parallel to the palate.
Leave the swab in place for a few seconds to absorb secretions. Oropharyngeal
swabs (e.g. throat swabs): Swab the posterior pharynx, avoiding the tongue.
All specimens should be shipped in compliance with all federal, state,
hospital, or public health laboratory guidelines. Check for information from
The Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC) or with state and county
public health laboratories for information that must be included with the
specimen for testing. Interim Guidelines for Collecting, Handling, and Testing
