Virus transport and preservation medium: BIOCOMMA

If you are looking for a means of transport and preservation of viruses, the BIOCOMMA company has a virus transport and presenvation medium. product that at Durviz we put at your fingertips. That will solve many of the infrastructure and distribution problems of your laboratory. So that you can relate to him we have written this article in which we expose the main characteristics of this product.

Virus transport and preservation medium: the BIOCOMMA proposal

The BIOCOMMA company has designed a solution that allows any virus sample to be inactivated in time to prevent it from being infected by aerosol. It is also a product that protects RNA from degradation.

Its main components are: HBSS, glycerin and guanidine salts.

It is a product that is applicable for the collection and transport of samples of: clinical influenza, avian influenza, HFMD, measles. And other virus samples as well as mycoplasma, ureaplasma and chlamydia. Although it can also be used with other samples.

With this means of transport, in addition, two types of sampling can be performed: Nasal swab or throat swab. We will choose the most suitable one.

With this means of transport, in addition, two types of sampling can be performed: Nasal swab or throat swab.

BIOCOMMA: Operation

The operation of this BIOCOMMA proposal is very simple and intuitive. All you have to do is follow the following steps so that our laboratory samples are perfectly protected from any possible contamination. They are as follows:

  1. Write the sample information on the label before sampling.
  2. Depending on the purpose of the analysis, the swab must be used in one way or another to collect samples from the corresponding parts. For this, it is enough that we put the swab in the conservation solution immediately after taking samples, break the swab rod and close the lid firmly. Of course, you have to be careful with possible problems that may appear when handling it. For example, the product is a clear, colorless liquid. If the properties change, for example it turns yellow, it should be discarded. It should also be noted that the liquid in the sampling tube is the medium for transport. The swab cannot be submerged prior to sampling.
  3. Once the samples we want to analyze have been taken, they must be transported to the laboratory within 2 working days after collection. To do this properly, the storage temperature should be 2-8 ° C. If this cannot be done, the samples should be stored at -70 ° C or less; and ensure that the samples are delivered to the laboratory within a week. Repeated freeze-thaw cycles should be avoided.

With one exception to note: samples used for virus isolation and nucleic acid detection should be processed as soon as possible.

 

Biocomma Transport: Indications

Like all laboratory products, it has been conceived for a specific purpose. Hence, it has some specific indications. Some of the most prominent are the following:

  1. It is not a product suitable for internal or external use in humans or animals.
  2. Must be handled with care as it can cause serious events if swallowed; it is irritating to the eyes and skin. If accidentally splashed into the eyes, rinse them with water. It is also advisable to maintain ventilation during use to avoid possible poisoning.
  3. Residues of the sample collection solution must be sterilized.

With all this, BIOCOMMA’s means of transport and conservation will work perfectly and will allow us to carry out our work more efficiently and with a smaller margin of error in the results. If you want to have it in your workspace, contact us and we will tell you about it.

Viral DNA-RNA Purification Kit

The DNA and Viral RNA Purification Kit is a Real brand product to make laboratory work faster. It is a set of elements that is designed for rapid and simultaneous purification of viral DNA and RNA from cell-free samples such as serum, plasma and cerebrospinal fluid.

A simple and very effective system with which we can carry out our work safely and quickly and can meet the current high demand for analysis of all kinds by the general population. Its effectiveness has been highly certified, so it is part of the product catalog that Durviz, as the official distributor of the brand, and we put it at your fingertips.

 

Goals of the purification kit

The Real brand Sample Purification Kit, available from Durviz, works to meet the objectives it intends to cover. In this respect, it should be borne in mind that viruses, when lysed with detergent and proteinase K, release total viral nucleic acids.

Therefore, in the presence of a caotropic salt, viral nucleic acids selectively bind to the fiberglass membrane in a special centrifuge tube. A process in which nucleic acids remain united while a series of rapid wash and spin steps remove contaminating cellular components.

Finally, low-salt elution removes viral nucleic acids from the fiberglass membrane. Enough to have the sample ready for analysis.

An important part of the work with this kit is that the process does not require nucleic acid precipitation, organic solvent extractions, or extensive handling of nucleic acids. This is a big difference from other similar products we can find on the market. That’s why your results are better and labs are purchasing this kit for their daily work.

The Real Spin Viral Kit for DNA and RNA analysis can be used for viral RNA and DNA isolation from a wide range of viruses that affect them.

However, according to the manufacturer, performance cannot be guaranteed for all virus species and must be validated by the customer. Therefore, we advise you to consult with us before you buy any questions you may have. We will give you all the details you need.

Real DNA

 

Features of the purification kit.

The main features of this REAL brand DNA and RNA purification kit are as follows:

  • A flexible DNA/viral RNA purification system, allowing for impurities-free samples. This means minimizing the margin of error of the results obtained in our work.
  • Enables fast and easy debugging with excellent reproducibility.
  • The kit includes a highly sensitive RNA carrier that you can use in later applications.
  • DNA or viral RNA can be used directly as templates for standard PCR testing or RT-PCR.
  • This kit contains a sample material consisting of: 200 µl serum, plasma, and cell-free biological fluids.

DNA removal

So if you’re looking for a purification kit that works great and lets you work with your DNA and RNA samples in the lab, don’t hesitate to pick up the Real brand. Efficiency and improvement instantly. Contact us and we’ll tell you how to do that.
