FAQs About BIO-VTM™ Viral Transport Media

What is Viral Transport Media?

The constituents of suitable viral transport media are designed to provide an isotonic solution containing protective protein, antibiotics to control microbial contamination and one or more buffers to control the pH. Isotonicity, however, is not an absolute requirement; some highly successful transport media contain hypertonic solutions of sucrose. Liquid transport media are used primarily for transporting swabs or materials released into the medium from a collection swab. Liquid media may be added to other specimens when inactivation of the viral agent is likely and when the resultant dilution is acceptable. Source

What Are the Uses of VTM? Are There Multiple?

Viral transport media can be used to transport specimens released into the media from a swab, or the swab itself, in a way that minimizes the chance of viral inactivation.

VTM allow for more effective use of viral culture and culture enhancement techniques for the diagnosis of human viral infections.

Are There Different Varieties of VTM?

Bio-VTM is built to the exact specifications of the CDC formula for viral transport media.

How Do You Store and Transport VTM?
