UTM® is an FDA cleared system suitable for collection, transport, maintenance and long-term freezer storage of clinical specimens containing viruses, chlamydia, and mycoplasma or ureaplasma organisms. The transport medium consists of a plastic, screw cap tube and maintains organisms viability for 48 hours at room or refrigerated temperature.

UTM™ ADVANTAGE

  • ROOM TEMPERATURE STABLE

  • RAPID RELEASE AND DISPERSION of specimen during vortexing due to three glass beads in each tube.

  • RAPID RELEASE AND DISPERSION of specimen during vortexing due to three glass beads in each tube.

  • SAFE, SHATTERPROOF, STAND UP tubes with distinctive internal conical shape enabling centrifugation of samples.
  • SAFE AND RELIABLE MOLDED SWAB SHAFT BREAKPOINT ON THE SHAFT
  • COST EFFICIENT large 3mL media fill volume allows for multiple tests from the same specimen.
1. Collect the specimen on the flocked swab for superior sample adhesion.
2. Strong capillary hydraulics between the strands of nylon maximizes liquid sample collection.
3. Place the swab in the UTM® transport medium and break the swab shaft at the marked breaking point.
