The virus sampling tube is used for the monitoring and sampling of infectious pathogenic microorganisms in the disease control part and the clinical part. Suitable for influenza virus (general influenza, highly pathogenic avian influenza, A H1N1 influenza virus, etc.), hand, foot and mouth virus and other types of virus sampling. It is also used for sampling of Mycoplasma, Chlamydia, Ureaplasma, etc. It is used to transport nasopharyngeal swab specimens or tissue specimens of specific parts from the sampling site to the testing laboratory for PCR extraction and testing. It is used to preserve nasopharyngeal swab samples or tissue samples of specific parts for necessary cell culture.


Virus sampling tube is a product used for the collection and transportation of infectious disease specimens. It is not a single product, but a set of products consisting of a sampling swab, a sampling preservation solution and a plastic tube. Sampling process: sample the patient with a sampling swab; put the preservation solution in the plastic tube; put the sample in the sample preservation solution in the plastic tube for preservation; transport the preserved sample to the laboratory; start the test.
There are three requirements for virus sampling tubes, including transportation, storage, and usefulness of samples. In transportation, it is necessary to ensure that the sample will not leak during the transportation; in storage, it is necessary to ensure that the sample will not leak during the preservation process; the usefulness of the sample is to ensure that the sampling tube itself does not have a toxic effect on the sample, and to avoid damage The material collected in the sampling tube affects and then affects the inspection results. Because the sampling tubes are filled with infectious substances, and even some of them are still highly pathogenic and rational substances, there will be high requirements for packaging containers.


The virus sampling tube preservation solution can be used for the collection, preservation and transportation of nasopharyngeal pathogen specimens such as new coronavirus, influenza, avian influenza, hand, foot and mouth disease, and measles. By mixing the collected samples with the virus lysis solution and the virus nucleic acid preservation solution, the virus in the sample can be inactivated, and the integrity of the virus nucleic acid in the sample can be effectively ensured. The collected samples can be transported and processed under normal temperature conditions. Long-term preservation.
