About UTM® Universal Transport Medium™ Collection Kits
UTM® Universal Transport Medium Universal Transport Media without beads is a FDA cleared collection and transport system suitable for collection, transport, preservation, and long-term freeze storage of clinical specimens containing viruses for viral molecular diagnostic testing, and meets CDC Interim Guidelines for Collecting, Handling, and Testing Clinical COVID-19 Specimens.
UTM® Universal Transport Medium's unique media formulation includes antibiotics to inhibit bacterial and fungal growth, without affecting viruses. The transport medium comes in a plastic, screw cap tube and maintains organism viability for 48 hours at room or refrigerated temperature.
Invented by COPAN, FLOQSwab® flocked swabs are a special type of swab produced with an applicator tip that is spray-coated with short Nylon® fibers arranged perpendicularly. Unlike traditional swabs made with materials that can trap the specimen, flocked swabs use a thin absorbent layer of Nylon® fibers with no internal core, allowing greater sample uptake and release.
