Viral Transport Medium VTM, 3ml fill (swabs sold separately), order by the package of 20, by Hardy Diagnostics

Intended use: Hardy Diagnostics Viral Transport Medium is recommended for the collection and transport of clinical specimens for the recovery of viral agents including, but not limited to, Herpes Simplex Type I, Herpes Simplex Type II, Cytomegalovirus (CMV), Influenza A, Influenza B, Respiratory Syncytial Virus (RSV), Echovirus, Adenovirus, etc.

Storage: While the optimal long term storage temperature has been determined to be 2-8°C due to the COVID-19 pandemic, recent internal studies have supported that the media can be stored at room temperature (RT) without decreased performance. Data permitting, the length of RT storage shall continue to be extended as the real-time findings are collected, and applied to each lot. For the length of allowable RT storage (post retrieval from 2-8°C conditions), please refer to the respective Certificate of Analysis for the lot-specific information.
