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.
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 the specimens when inactivation of the viral agent is likely and when the resultant dilution is acceptable.
Life Science Group manufactures Viral Transport Media to CDC, WHO and customer specific protocols.
