Swab Collection System

The MiRXES Swab Collection system allows collection of potentially viral-infected throat or nasal swabs in a guanidine solution that lyses and denatures viruses, allowing for safe storage and handling for up to two weeks at room temperature.

Lysed extract is compatible with widely available spin column- and magnetic bead-based RNA extraction kits.

Figure above shows SARS-CoV-2 viral RNA detection after extended storage in MiRXES VTM versus a comparator (Supplier C VTM). Lower Ct is indicative of more sensitive detection of viral RNA.

Ordering Information

All MiRXES swab collection kits contain collection tubes, preservation solution and virus transport medium (VTM). 

Kits are available in multiple formats to include either a throat swab, nasal swab or no swab.
