Liofilchem VTM  – Transport Medium for Viruses, Chlamydia, Mycoplasma and Ureaplasma
VTM is suitable for collection and preservation of clinical specimens containing viruses, including SARS-CoV-2 (COVID-19), Chlamydia spp., Mycoplasma spp. and Ureaplasma spp. The transport medium can be used with swabs and aspirates and is available in a plastic, screw cap tube. The transported microorganism remains viable for 48 hours at room or refrigerated temperature. VTM does not contain guanidium thiocyanate.

  • Storage at 10-25°C.
  • Contains antimicrobial agents to minimize bacterial and fungal contamination, without affecting viruses, Chlamydia, Mycoplasma or Ureaplasma.
  • A pH indicator (phenol red) indicates the VTM’s integrity during the shelf life of the product.
  • The tube stands upright on the laboratory bench thanks to the skirted, flat-bottom, while the conical shape allows centrifugation of the sample.
  • 16 x 100mm skirted tube with plastic red cap.
  • Sterile. 100/pack
