COVID-19 Dry Media Saliva Sample Collection Products

GenTegra GTR-STM & GenTegra GTR-STMdk COVID-19 Products

Non-Dilutive Saliva Sample Collection Products*

  • Provides Non-Dilutive Saliva Sample Collection
  • Improves Assay Sensitivity
  • More Efficient SARS-CoV-2 RT-PCR Testing
  • Maintains Viral RNA Sample Integrity During Heat Disinfection

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.

*Limited to CLIA certified laboratories seeking to validate the use of GTR-STM with in-house high-complexity using a SARS-CoV-2 molecular or antigen diagnostic assay.

GenTegra COVID-19 Product GTR-STM

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.

GenTegra COVID 19 (direct to PCR) Product

GenTegra’s COVID-19 product, GTR-STMdk, contains Proteinase K in the proprietary non-dilutive dry media formulation.  This formulation allows all samples to go direct to PCR, eliminating RNA extraction.  This improves workflow efficiency and reduces lab expenses. GTR-STMdk formula facilitates detection of viral RNA down to 0.4 genome equivalents/uL, which promotes screening of asymptomatic individuals and testing pooled samples. SARS-CoV-2 viral RNA stability is retained for three days at ambient temperature.
