Inactivating Transport Media:
Safely Inactivate Pathogens and Preserve Nucleic Acids
Instantly inactivate pathogen (e.g. COVID-19 virus）in freshly collected clinical samples, reducing the infection risk of health care professionals during sample collection, transportation and testing.
Inhibit nucleases, thereby ensuring that the released nucleic acids are not degraded. Additional nucleic acid protecting ingredients in the preservation solution can protect nucleic acid, especially single-stranded RNA, so that RNA maintains stable in an alkaline environment. The product can protect clinical samples of COVID-19 that cannot be tested immediately or require long-distance transportation.
Clinical samples remain stable in the tube for 30 days at room temperature; store samples at -20°C for long term storage.
Clinical samples were stored in ITM at -20℃, 4℃, room temperature, 37℃, 55℃ for 30 days. RT-PCR results showed that there were no significant changes in Ct values over 30 days, proving that the collected samples were stable for at least 30 days at room temperature.
