Viral Transport Medium

DNA/RNA Shield is a viral transport medium for the collection, transport, and storage of virus-containing specimen. DNA/RNA Shield viral transport medium ensures safer handling of specimen that may contain infectious agents within different matrices, including upper and lower respiratory specimens, by lysing and denaturing pathogens at the point of collection. The DNA/RNA Shield collection kits protect viruses in specimen from compositional changes and bias due to nucleic acid degradation issues related to the logistics of collection and ambient temperature transportation, providing clinicians and researchers with high quality DNA and RNA for analysis. DNA/RNA Shield is being used as a viral transport medium by a multitude of COVID-19 tests across the globe for its safety and specimen stability characteristics.
