Swabs and Transport Media for COVID-19: In Stock Now, Ready to Ship

Available in stock now, ready to ship, MedSchenker™ flocked swabs and transport media for viruses (including SARS-CoV-2) are made to FDA class 1 standard and have been used extensively in Korea.

Vectornate USA, Inc. can offer the CavSwab™ range of either nasopharyngeal or oropharyngeal swabs for sample collection together with vials of MedSchenker™ Smart Transport Medium (STM) for the transport, maintenance and long term freeze storage of viruses (including for COVID-19 specimens), chlamydia, mycoplasma and ureaplasma.

The MedSchenker STM is a proprietary version of Universal Transport Medium (UTM)  and consists of a modified Hank's balanced salt solution supplemented with bovine serum albumin, cysteine, gelatin, sucrose, and glutamic acid. The pH is buffered with HEPES buffer. Phenol red is used to indicate pH. Vancomycin, amphotericin B, and colistin are incorporated in the medium to inhibit the growth of competing bacteria and yeast. The medium is isotonic and non-toxic to mammalian host cells. The presence of sucrose acts as a cryoprotectant which aids in the preservation of viruses and chlamydiae if specimens are frozen (-70ºC) for prolonged storage.

CavSwab™ Nasopharyngeal Swabs - sterile, flocked nylon fiber swabs – 1000 units per box
CavSwab™ Oropharyngeal - sterile, flocked nylon fiber swabs – 1000 units per box
