Nasopharyngeal swab collection kits with VTM 

The NEST Disposable Nasopharyngeal VTM Sampler kits from Wuxi Nest Biotechnology are high quality, yet affordable kits for the collection of nasopharyngeal swab samples for COVID-19 testing. Containing Viral Transport Media (VTM) for nucleic acid detection and virus culture, the kits can be stored at room temperature pre-collection but should be stored at 2-8 post-collection to avoid the growth of contaminants.


VTM contains Hanks Balanced Salt Solution, Fetal Bovine Serum, anti-bacterial antibiotics, anti-fungal antibiotics and Phenol Red as an indicator for real-time monitoring of pH stability of the solution.

Swab & tube specifications

The sterile nasopharyngeal swab provided features a flocked tip with a breakpoint at 80 mm from the tip, compatible with the tubes provided. The tube cap design is highly effective at containing the VTM and preventing leakage of the sample. The tubes are pre-labelled and each has a unique barcode identifier.


These kits are available with either 5 ml or 10 ml tubes containing 2.5 ml or 3 ml of VTM respectively:

1) 5 ml Nasopharyngeal VTM Sampler kits

Supplied in boxes containing 50 loose swabs and 5 packs of 10 vials

2) 10 ml Nasopharyngeal VTM Sampler kits

Supplied individually wrapped in cases of 100 kits
