The newly introduced Disposable Virus Sample Tube with Swab (DVST+S) was developed and validated to fill the growing need for more DVSTs due to the expansion of PCR testing and can be used for onsite as well as remote sample acquisition. The DVST+S collection kit comes complete with a sample swab and a sealable transport tube with label and which contains a pre-mixed preservative. The DVST+S is configured to work with multiple infectious agents for lab transport.

The preservative within the transport tube consists of a low concentration of surfactant and isotonic salt ions. This solution inactivates and preserves the virus specimen following acquisition and during the transport to the lab. The transport media also acts as a biological preservative to prevent viral degradation, which inhibits reproduction of various bacteria and fungi.
