The Virus Collection Kit is designed for collection, transportation and short-time storage of total DNA/RNA in clinical specimens such as saliva, blood, serum, stool and body fluid, etc. The preservative will lyse the organisms and inactivate the cells, bacteria and viruses. The stored samples can be used in subsequent clinical experiments such as DNA/RNA extraction, PCR testing or sequencing. The kit is ideal for collecting specimens for coronavirus identification and downstream studies.
Used for collection, transportation and storage of viral DNA/RNA samples. This product is suitable for the preservation of pharyngeal swabs, nasal swabs or tissue samples in specific parts after sampling. The stored samples can be used in subsequent clinical experiments such as nucleic acid extraction/purification, PCR experiments and next-generation sequencing (NGS).
