A Viral Transport Medium (VTM) following the WHO and CDC recommendations with or without swab.

Diagnosis of C-19 viral infection by culture relies on adequate sample collection and proper care to protect the virus in the sample from environmental damage and the use of an adequate transport system to maintain virus activity. Polymed Viral Transport Media carries a medium specially formulated for the transport of viral samples. It is designed to maintain optimal viability and virulence of the viral sample. Polymed's VTM enables the secure transfer of viruses for diagnostic purposes. Engineered with safety, reliability, and convenience to meet your viral testing needs.


Viral transport media

The viral transport medium contains Hank's balanced salt solution with phenol red indicator to ensure the integrity of the medium at the time of sample collection.
Provides protective proteins and antibiotics to inhibit microbial contamination and buffers to control the pH balanced environment.
Tube dimension: 16 X 100 mm
Media: 3ml

The fine flocked nylon swab provides excellent sample collection and elutes cellular material in a liquid medium.

Separate swabs for nasal and oral samples.

The success of the diagnosis of (2019-nCoV) during the C-19 outbreak depends largely on the quality of the specimen and the conditions under which the specimen is transported and stored before being processed in the laboratory.
Viral Transport Medium (VTM) allows the safe transfer of viruses, chlamydia and mycoplasma for further research, including conventional cell culture methods, diagnostic tests, and molecular biology techniques.
Commercially prepared viral transport media are available in a screw cap plastic tube containing buffered proteins (serum, albumin or gelatin) and antibiotics. Antibiotics are usually incorporated into the viral transport media to suppress the growth of contaminating bacteria and fungi, so separate samples from the same site should be collected if bacterial or fungal cultures are also requested.
Our Viral Transport Medium is based on Hanks Balanced Salt Solution (HBSS) with Calcium and Magnesium and contains heat-inactivated Fetal Bovine Serum, Gentamycin and Amphotericin B. The composition and the manufacturing of the Viral Transport Medium follow the WHO and the CDC recommendations.
The product is provided as a liquid in a sterile 13 ml flat bottom tube with or without a swab to provide a maximum range of possibilities to collect samples.

The VTM is available in 2 formats : Without and with swabs.

Viral Lysis Transport Medium is specially formulated for the collection and transport of viruses. It is designed to lyse and maintain optimal conditions for viral sample transport.

Polymed Viral Lysis Transport Medium helps collect and transport COVID 19 viruses in lysed form to the laboratory for analysis.

Viral Lysis Transport Medium

The viral lysis transport medium contains Tris-HCl buffer and contains a surfactant, a chelating agent, and antimicrobial agents (antibiotics and antifungals) to control microbial contamination and also buffers to control pH.


VLTM inactivates the virus immediately after passing the swab to the media, allowing for the safe collection and transport of COVID-19 samples.
VLTM enables safe handling of samples and ensures the safety of healthcare professionals.
Preserves and stabilizes RNA at higher temperatures.
Tube dimension: 16 mm x 100 mm Medium: 3 ml and 1.5 ml.
