Viral Transport Kit (Nylon Flocked And Polyester Swab)
Collection of Samples: Samples for research on viruses, chlamydia, mycoplasmas or ureaplasmas should be collected and handled following the reference manuals and guidelines. Probability of successful isolation is increased if the sample is processed immediately after collection. Therefore, once the collection of a sample is done itshould immediately be placed in the transport bottle where it will come in contact with the transport medium. To maintain optimum viability, samples should be taken to thelaboratory as soon as possible. The better recovery is obtained if samples are refrigerated at 2°C to 8°C or held with ice pack after collection and during transport. If there is going to be a long delay before they are processed, the samples should be frozen at -70°C or at a lower temperature and transported on dry ice. Procedure: 1. Open the pouch to remove the swab. 2. Specimen can be collected with the swab in the following manner: salswab A. A sal swab is used to diagnose upper respiratory tract infections, such as whooping cough. It is quick and painless test. B. Insert a small, soft-tipped swab into each nostrils and twirl it a few times until it is covered in secretions. This may be a little uncomfortable but should not be painful. sopharyngeal swab A. Place patient with the head tilted slightly back. B. With sterile gloved hand, insert suction catheter into the patient's nose to the depth of the sopharyngeal area (beyond the turbites). Do not remove catheter until end of procedure. C. With the non-sterile gloved hand, instill approximately 1-2 mL normal saline outside the catheter. D. Apply suction to aspirate sopharyngeal secretions. E. Above steps may need to be repeated to obtain 1 mL sample in specimen trap. F. Remove catheter from patient. With specimen trap still in-line, rinse catheter with remaining saline to clear secretions. G. Specimens transported by tube system must be transferred from trap to a leak-proof sterile container (be sure the lid is tightly secured). Throat swab A throat swab is a test commonly used to diagnose infections in the throat. These infections can include strep throat, pneumonia, tonsillitis, whooping cough, meningitis, etc. A. Ask patient to open his/her mouth. Swab the back of throat near the tonsils thoroughly. B. Break the swab near the break point and insert into the tube containing viral transport medium and close the cap tightly. C. Label the sample correctly with me of patient, time and date of collection. D. Transport the samples immediately to the laboratory for processing. TRANSPORTATION OF SAMPLE: To maintain optimum viability, transport the specimen to the laboratory as soon as possible. Best recovery is obtained when specimens are refrigerated at 2-8°C or kept on wet ice following collection and while in transit. If there will be long delay before processing, it is suggested that specimen should be frozen at -70°C. STORAGE AND SHELF LIFE: The viral transport kit should be stored at 15-30°C before sample collection and 2-8°C aftersample collection. Use before the expiry date.
