1. Sample collection tube 1 pc
Size of Φ16×100mm, capacity of 10ml. Tube body and cap are made by Polypropylene, No deformation after HTHP (121˚C, 15min), no embrittlement under low temperature (-196˚C). it can bear static extrusion and dynamic impact. Taper bottom design makes it bear centrifugation and shaking. Leakage proof.
2. Sample storage liquid 3.5ml
According to vast test of the influence to cells among Basic liquid, buffer system, protein stabilizer, freezing protective agent, amino acid, We summarize a formula which is most applicable for the virus storage. It can keep a high efficiency for virus storage, and largely increase the positive rate of virus culture.
3. Sampling swab 1pc:
Flocking Nylon swab, No toxic to the cells and virus. RNAse free. It can increase the collecting and releasing of the specimen in the largest degree, which can ensure positive result in PCR tests.The plastic sticker is unique designed make it easy to break off, No fragment when breaking off the sticker.
