Streck is partnering with Longhorn Vaccines and Diagnostics to distribute its flagship product, PrimeStore® Molecular Transport Media (MTM), worldwide. PrimeStore MTM is an FDA-cleared collection device for the inactivation, stabilization and ambient temperature transportation of biological samples.

Nucleic acid-based testing can rapidly identify infection-causing pathogens, providing the necessary information for health care professionals to quickly implement appropriate and effective treatment strategies. However, the collection, transport and handling of infectious disease specimens is often complicated by safety concerns for personnel involved in testing and the inherent instability of the microbial nucleic acids of interest.

PrimeStore MTM is designed to rapidly inactivate viruses (including Influenza), bacteria (including Mycobacterium tuberculosis, MTB) and veterinary pathogens (ASFv, CSFv, FMDv, HPAI, and NDv) at point-of-collection and stabilize DNA and RNA during storage and shipping. Samples can be collected, shipped and processed without prior inactivation and at ambient temperature.
