MSS is a viral transport solution designed to facilitate collection and transport of viruses safely from site of sampling to a laboratory location at ambient temperatures. The medium is buffered to help maintain a pH of 7.1, and contains a metal ion chelator, a non-ionic surfactant and a chaotropic agent to ensure disruption of virus particles, denaturation of viral proteins and inactivation of nucleases that may destroy target nucleic acids.
The resultant sample is suitable for virus identification by PCR analysis as well as other nucleic acid manipulations.
MSS is designed to disrupt viral particles, denature viral proteins and, therefore, reduce the infection hazard during transport and laboratory processing.
NB – BM1677 MSS has been validated only for use with the SARS-CoV-2 virus
