Kremsmünster, February 2021 – The VACUETTE® Virus Stabilization Tube supports the safe transport and storage of specimens. For additional safety measures, the transport of this product in combination with the VACUETTE® Transport Line ensures further security in the delivery of nasopharyngeal and oropharyngeal swabs to the laboratory.

At the beginning of the year, the purpose for the tube was expanded. Previously intended only for transporting and storing samples that were going to be used for detecting Sars-CoV-2, detection of influenza A and influenza B is now included.

* Please note that the extension of the intended use for detection of viral RNA of influenza A and B is not applicable for the US market.
