Viral Transport Medium

Bulk Viral Transport Medium for Covid-19 testing.

Viral Transport Medium

Rocky Mountain Biologicals, LLC (RMBIO) produces Viral Transport Medium (VTM) designed specifically for SARS-CoV-2 (also known as corona virus and Covid-19) testing. Our Viral Transport Medium is produced according to the United States Centers for Disease Control (CDC) protocol #: DSR-052-01 and utilizes a molecular grade buffer that is DNase, RNase, and protease-free. Each lot of Viral Transport Medium is tested according to CDC protocol for sterility and is issued a certificate of analysis before being released for sale.

At this time, RMBIO can only provide bulk aliquots of Viral Transport Medium in the following sizes:

• 50ml

• 100ml

• 500ml

• 1000ml

• 50L

• 200L

• 500L

The CDC recommends individual test tubes (which RMBIO does not provide) be filled with 3ml of VTM each. The VTM must be aliquoted under sterile conditions and remain chilled before and after opening. The CDC also recommends an expiration date of one year from the date of manufacture.

If we do not have enough inventory on hand to fulfil an order, our production lead time is approximately three business days from date of order, but this may change based on VTM demand and potential supply constraints for media components.

To place an order, please send a purchase order to sales@rmbio.com that includes contact information for your accounts payable department and instructions for submitting invoices. In lieu of a purchase order, orders may also be placed by calling 866-733-9859 and prepaying with a credit card. RMBIO will add shipping and packaging charges to the order total. You may request to ship on your own FedEx or freight account. Orders must be shipped overnight or as cold freight, as the VTM must remain refrigerated. Currently, we ship via FedEx because UPS has temporarily suspended delivery guarantees.

All products at Rocky Mountain Biologicals, LLC are manufactured in accordance with GMP standards.
