Ready-to-Use, Heat Inactivated, USDA Origin, Sterile-Filtered, RNase/DNase/Protease Tested, CDC Compliant
Viral Transport Media (VTM) is an isotonic solution composed of protective proteins, antibiotics to prevention microbial contamination, and buffers to assist in maintaining physiological pH range. Isotonicity is not essential. VTM is primarily utilized for the transportation of swabs or materials released into the medium from a collection swab. Viral Transport Media (VTM) from Redoxica has been produced in strict accordance with the Center for Disease Control’s (CDC) guidelines (CDC SOP# DSR-052-02). This VTM was developed in response to the COVID-19 pandemic to support ongoing research and development needs.
As per the CDC's recommended formulation, our product contains heat inactivated (HI) USDA origin fetal bovine serum (FBS), gentamicin, amphotericin in a hanks balanced salt solution base. Reverse Osmosis De-ionized (RO-DI) water was utilized during production. This product is suitable for a wide range of viral research and development purposes including viral collection, transport, maintenance, and culture. The appearance of Redoxica's VTM is a clear liquid with an amber tint and contains no phenol red indicator as this is not a requirement per CDC guidelines. Each lot of VTM is tested on blood agar incubated at 37°C for 48 hrs to determine sterility of the final product and the results of this microbial sterility test must be negative for microbial growth (no growth) in order to pass our QC. Our VTM is manufactured in an FDA registered, ISO-13485:2016 certified facility based in the United States under Current Good Manufacturing Practice (cGMP).
