    【Intended Use】

    This product is mainly used for collection, transportation and preservation of oropharyngeal parts of respiratory and enteric virus such as new coronavirus (COVID-19), influenza, bird flu, hand-foot-mouth, swine flu and so on. It is also suitable for the collection of other viruses, chlamydia, mycoplasma and ureaplasma urealyticum specimen.

    The collected samples are stored in the sample preservation solution, which can be used for the extraction and purification of viral DNA/RNA for subsequent RT-PCR analysis or gene sequencing and other detections.

    【Main Components】

    Sample storage tube

    The tube body and tube cover are made by polypropylene.

    Sample preservation solution

    Light red Hank‘s solution is non-inactivated solution contains antibiotics that can effectively inhibit the reproduction of bacteria and fungi.

    Colorless and transparent preservative solution is inactivated solution which can effectively inactivate virus and reduce the degradation of viral nucleic acid.

    Built-in glass beads, convenient elution, conducive to the release of viruses and other microorganisms into the sample preservation solution.

    12.3 The pH of Lysis Buffer:7-7.6

    13. Warnings

    13.1 The kit are for in vitro diagnosis and professional only.

    13.2 Operators should be professionally trained and have certain experience and operating skills; wear masks, disposable latex gloves (often replaced) and other protective measures, use disposable RNase/DNase-free EP tube, TIP head and self-discharging pipettor.

    13.3 Operate strictly according to the instructions and the testing procedures of the biosafety laboratory of infectious diseases.

    13.4 Avoid cross-contamination between samples during sample collection and storage process; the use of biosafety cabinets in the sample processing stage is recommended.

    13.5 The biosafety cabinets, pipettes and centrifuges used in the operation should be disinfected with 75% alcohol before and after the experiment, and the workbench is irradiated with ultraviolet light for more than 30 minutes.  

    13.6 The pre-dispensing plate contains irritant compounds, if accidentally contaminated the skin and eyes, immediately wash with plenty of water or normal saline, and seek medical consultation if necessary.

    13.7 The laboratory management should be strictly in accordance with the relevant national management standards for molecular biology laboratories and clinical gene amplification laboratories.
