Collection stabilization and transport of saliva samples

Transport of saliva samples and other cares

Collection, stabilization, and transport of saliva samples are important now more than ever. And it is that since we live in the middle of a pandemic, care in the entire process of extraction and handling of samples requires greater neatness. Therefore, we need products that facilitate procedures. A job that companies like Real offer to professionals in the sector.

Collection stabilization and transport of saliva samples

Collection, stabilization and transport of saliva samples

Collecting samples for analysis requires precise conditions to prevent contamination. And is that any interference can condition the results. What cancels the test and makes the procedure unfeasible.

To avoid this situation, the Real company has launched REAL SALIVA VIRAL Sample Collection Kit. A product that provides an all-in-one procedure. And to be able to do with it a fast and safe collection; as well as to ensure its stabilization and the transport of one-milliliter saliva samples. And all can be done at room temperature, as the product stabilizes the viral DNA and RNA.

This stabilization is possible thanks to REAL VIRAL Stabilization Solution. A product that efficiently inactivates viruses. What solutions for the handling of non-infectious samples, making possible a safe handling and shipment of all these tests.

One of the main advantages of this system is that the samples are kept at room temperature. In the case of DNA, up to one year. Regarding RNA, up to a month. In case they are subjected to low temperatures, the conditions change. And it is that if they are kept between -20 / -80 ° C they can be kept indefinitely.

Advantages of the Real Saliva collection and stabilization system

The main advantages of the sample collection, stabilization and transport system developed by the Real company are the following:

  • Allows the handling of samples of one milliliter of saliva.
  • Inactivates microorganisms and viruses for easy and safe handling and transport.
  • It is a product that allows the isolation of human genomic DNA and viral DNA / RNA. A variety not offered by other similar products on the market.
  • As already mentioned, this product allows transport at room temperature. This means eliminating cold infrastructure elements that hinder and retain transportation by requiring more procedures and paperwork.
  • Makes it possible to preserve total DNA in samples, including viral DNA, at room temperature. But if a temperature between 4º-25ºC is kept, it will be possible to do so for a whole year.
  • In the case of RNA there are very interesting advantages. And it is that it allows total RNA to be preserved, including viral RNA, at room temperature. And if we do it in a cold system (those that are between 4º-25ºC can be kept for a whole month.
  • They are systems compatible with most of the DNA and RNA isolation methods found on the market. Although it is best to use REAL products. Both those offered as kits and those sold independently.
  • It is a product specially designed for health professionals. And its handling is very simple and intuitive.

 

So, if you are looking for a collection, stabilization and transport system for any of your saliva samples, at Durviz we have what you need. Do not hesitate, visit our website to expand this information and get in touch with us.

Rapid COVID 19 test from blood, serum or plasma

If you need to do a rapid COVID 19 detection test from blood, serum or plasma samples, at Durviz we have the product you need. It is an exclusive proposal for use in laboratories

 

Rapid COVID 19 test from blood, serum or plasma

The rapid test that we propose at Durviz is a lateral flow chromatographic immunoassay that allows the qualitative detection of IgG and IgM antibodies against 2019-nCoV. An action that it is capable of carrying out in human blood, serum, plasma or also in a blood sample with a lancet.

This product uses immunochromatography as a detection technique. These types of tests are commonly used for medical diagnosis both for home tests and for use in the laboratory. Hence, it is one of the most requested media by professionals at the present time.

And it is that immunochromatography is one of the most widely used immunodiagnostic techniques today. Its main attractions are: the simplicity and speed of the tests that use this proposal. Hence, with the current need for diagnoses due to the COVID 19 pandemic, there are more and more applications of this technique in the field of tests. Especially since it does not need reagents or additional instrumentation for its operation. Something that does occur in other similar methodologies that are applied to the clinical field.

 

Advantages of the rapid COVID 19 test

The main advantages of this product are the following:

  • It is presented in a strip format, in which the test sample flows along a solid substrate through capillary action.
  • This is a combined antibody test that can provide information on the stage of infection of the person being tested. And it is that the detection of COVID-19 IgM antibodies tends to indicate a recent exposure to COVID-19, while the detection of COVID-19 IgG antibodies indicate a later stage of infection.
  • The test contains anti-human IgM and anti-human IgG as capture reagent, 2019-nCoV antigen as detection reagent. An IgG reagent is used in the control line system.
  • It is a product for exclusive use in laboratories.

 

To all this must be added, in addition, that IgM provides the first line of defense during viral infections, followed by the generation of adaptive responses of high anity of IgG for long-term immunity and immunological memory.

 

COVID 19 Rapid Test Features

The main features of the COVID 19 rapid test are as follows:

  • Testing should be done immediately after samples have been collected.
  • Serum and plasma samples can be stored at 2-8 ° C for up to 7 days. For long-term storage, serum / plasma samples should be kept below -20 ° C. Whole blood collected by venipuncture should be stored at 2-8 ° C if testing will be performed within 2 days of collection.
  • Negative results do not rule out SARS-CoV-2 infection. This should be taken into account particularly in those people who have been in contact with the virus. A follow-up test with a molecular diagnosis should be considered to rule out infection in these individuals.
  • Results of antibody tests should not be used as the sole basis for making a diagnosis. Neither to exclude a SARS-CoV-2 infection or to report infection status.

 

So, if you are looking for a system that allows you to perform a rapid test to detect the presence of COVId 19 from blood, serum or plasma, do not hesitate and visit our website. You can buy both this product that we have reviewed in this article, as well as many other accessories. Everything so that you can acquire the best and most reliable results in your laboratory.
