∑-VCM® Universal Transport for Viruses, Chlamydia, Mycoplasma and Ureaplasma

Sigma-VCM Universal Swab Transport and Storage System The ∑-VCM® is the latest addition to the Sigma range; a universal transport and storage system for use with Viruses, Chlamydia, Mycoplasma (including ureaplasma) and also for Neisseria gonorrhoeae.

∑-VCM® will have a positive clinical impact on the development of reliable and accurate laboratory results. This single universal medium will reduce the number of inappropriately taken samples, therefore avoiding the need to order repeat specimens. There is also no need for ∑-VCM® to be refrigerated or frozen for transport.

MWE has developed ∑-VCM® as a multipurpose system. ∑-VCM® can be stored and transported at ambient temperature and is compatible with both culture and molecular methods of detection. This stable and efficient system offers reliable transport and storage of samples for analysis and plays an important role in laboratory processes.

∑-VCM® offers exceptional convenience with a choice of fill volume, vial size, swab type and comes with a 12 month shelf life at ambient temperature. It provides optimum recovery of respiratory, genital and enteric viruses. Antibiotics in the medium inhibit the growth of contaminating bacteria and fungi. Glass beads break up the cells to release chlamydia and virus particles.
