A premium transport device for use with nucleic acid testing of SARS-CoV-2 and (USA only) human influenza specimens

3D Medical Supplies’ 3DVTM01 Transport Medium Tube is intended for on-site collection and transport to the testing laboratory of human clinical specimens containing SARS-CoV-2 — the virus that causes COVID-19 disease in humans and/or (USA only) influenza A virus. 1–4

Intended to be inoculated with specimens collected with a nasopharyngeal (NP) or oropharyngeal (OP) synthetic fiber swab (not provided), VTM-C19 has been validated to transport SARS-CoV-2 and (USA only) influenza A viral specimen appropriately to the lab for analysis with qRT-PCR.


What exactly is transported in the VTM?

The VTM-C19 Transit Tube contains a viral transport medium (VTM) intended to be inoculated with nasopharyngeal (NP) or oropharyngeal (OP) synthetic fiber swab specimens for transport to the lab.

The 3DVTM01 Transport Medium is designed for specimen preservation in preparation for analysis with validated qRT-PCR assays to detect severe acute respiratory syndrome coronavirus 2 (SARS-CoV-2) that causes COVID-19 disease in humans.

This is CDC-approved media for COVID-19 sample collection and transport. 3DVTM01 has been validated for stable transport of SARS-CoV-2 only.

How was the 3DVTM01 validated?

Validated by our internal R&D team using qRT-PCR (N1 gene). Validation results confirmed that 3DVTM01 maintained the viability of the RNA for 72 hours post sample collection (when stored at 2-8°C. Cell lysate of SARS-Cov-2 infected cells were used for validation (not live virus).

Is shipping ambient temperature or cold?

Currently,  we are shipping 3DVTM01 as a cold product.

Can you provide a full validation report?

Millenia Advanced Scientific can provide the validation report per request only.

Do you sell swabs?

Yes, we do.  Our The NPSFlex™ Swab not only provides better accuracy than the current COVID-19 testing standard, but meets the demand for more testing. We are currently printing 20,000 swabs a day from our print farms, which is a fraction of our full capacity.
