Virus Collection Swab

The Swab for collecting a viral sample from the oropharynx and nasopharynx has an easily breakable stem inside the BBV Viral Transport Medium tube, the stem is produced with non-toxic medical grade material that does not affect viral activity and morphology.

It is manufactured with medical grade rayon tip without fluorescent material, thus preventing interference in the detection of viral PCR.

According to the “CDC guidelines for the collection and handling on clinical specimens suspected of COVID-19”, only synthetic fiber swabs and rigid plastic rods should be used; noting further that the COTTON SWAB should NOT be used to test suspected cases of COVID-19. Cotton fiber contains substances that inactivate the virus and can inhibit the RT-PCR test leading to false negatives (reference: U.S. Food and Drug Administration-FDA).

Benefits:

  • Immediate delivery.
  • ANVISA registration.
  • Easily breakable stem avoiding user contamination.
  • Sterile and individually packaged product.
  • They do not interfere with viral PCR because they are rayon.
  • Ergonomic and comfortable for collection.
