The Cellmatics Viral Transport Pack, which is contained in the cardboard pouch of the BD Cellmatics, includes everything needed to collect a viral specimen.
Included in the pack are a screw-cap vial containing Difco brand viral/chlamydial transport medium, a sterile, rayon-tipped plastic shaft swab and a cardboard transport pouch with printed instructions and patient ID label.
The liquid viral/chlamydial transport medium contains HEPES biological buffer as used in cell culture media, Hanks balanced salt solution with gelatin as a holding medium, and gentamicin sulfate to reduce the overgrowth of microorganisms. The rigid cardboard transport pouch serves as a protective sample transport container while also providing printed, graphical instructions for use, along with a pre-attached patient ID label.
