Transit Tubes TF (TF-Transit Tubes)
Biomed Diagnostics Inc. is pleased to announce the introduction of the TF-Transit tube. The TF-Transit tube is a premium sample collection & transport system specifically designed for bovine ‘Trich’ PCR testing (i.e., trichomoniasis, T. foetus infection). The TF-Transit is a field-oriented sample collection device that retains the Gold Standard InPouch™ TF liquid medium, but in a test tube for ease of collection, transport and DNA extraction - for PCR-only TF testing. The TF-Transit tube is not a diagnostic test.
While the TF-Transit is the newest addition to the Biomed Diagnostics product line, it retains the same proven, reliable and universally accepted liquid formula from the InPouch™ TF—The industry standard diagnostic test for bovine ‘trich’ testing for the last 20 years . This same proprietary medium formulation was originally selected and validated by McMillen & Lew, whose work ultimately gave rise to the now-standard RT-PCR methods for bovine TF detection(McMillen & Lew. Vet Parisitol. 2006. 141:204). When you are submitting samples to your regional lab for PCR-only testing, use the TF-Transit for the utmost in safety and quality for your bovine TF samples.
