GenTegra introduces two COVID-19 saliva collection products to stabilize viral RNA. GTR-STM™ and GTR-STMdk™ (Direct to PCR) contain GenTegra’s novel Active Chemical Protection™ (ACP) formula, a proprietary non-dilutive dried media that stabilizes RNA. The saliva devices for COVID-19 sample collection enhance patient comfort, convenience, and compliance.
GenTegra’s COVID-19 Kit, GTR-STM, saliva collection product can be used at remote testing sites or at-home. The collection tube contains GenTegra’s proprietary Active Chemical Protection formulation, a non-dilutive dry media. ACP facilitates detection of low virus levels that may be found in patients who are asymptomatic. Each saliva sample collected can be kept at ambient temperatures. The lab workflow is compatible with commonly used automated and manual extraction methods.
