PrimeStore® Molecular Transport Medium to inactivate viruses and pathogens Ensuring safe collection and transportation of pathogenic samples. A novel viral transport media to help in the fight against COVID-19 and other infectious diseases PrimeStore® MTM is a molecular transport media that safely inactivates microbes whilst stabilising and preserving the released DNA and RNA for downstream […]
PrimeStore® MTM is a molecular transport media that safely inactivates microbes whilst stabilising and preserving the released DNA and RNA for downstream molecular applications including Next Generation Sequencing and qPCR.
This Molecular Transport Media was designed and optimised for molecular testing allowing pathogenic samples to be collected, transported, and processed safely and efficiently. PrimeStore® MTM has been a vital tool during the SARS-CoV-2/COVID-19 pandemic.
PrimeStore® MTM provides safer and more reliable testing than universal transport media (UTM), viral transport media (VTM), saline, or research-use only devices.
PrimeStore® MTM Benefits
|PrimeStore® MTM||Generic VTM / UTM|
|Cold chain storage and transportation required?||No||Yes|
|Sample inactivated?||Yes. Testing can take place outside of containment||No. Virus is still a biohazard and testing should be under controlled containment|
|Sample integrity||Destroys enzymes and nucleases, preserving DNA and RNA||May contain enzymes and nucleases that damage DNA and RNA|
|Shelf life||24 months||Less than 6 months|
Unlike most sample collection systems PrimeStore MTM alleviates cold chain requirements for sample collection and transportation, ensuring RNA stability for 7 days at ambient temperatures or 28 days at 2-8C.
The PrimeStore MTM collection tube is optimised for short, medium- and long-term storage as samples placed in PrimeStore MTM are ready for biobanking with no requirements for additional supplies.
