TF Transit Tube


TF-Transit Tube is a self-contained system for the collection and transport of Tritrichomonas foetus from bovine preputial or vaginal samples. The proprietary medium is selective for Trichomonas, while inhibiting the growth of other organisms.

TF-Transit Tube is designed to facilitate the identification of T. foetus with PCR technology by providing:

  • Easy, field-sample inoculation
  • Improved Trichomonas selectivity with our proprietary “Gold Standard” TF medium
  • Safe transport and preservation of the specimen
  • DNA extraction and PCR compatible
  • Suppression of yeast and bacteria in the sample

Transit Tube is for veterinary specimen transport to be used in conjunction with nucleic acid-based testing, i.e. PCR. Consult your local (e.g., State Department of Agriculture) regulations before use. Some states require that only certified veterinarians collect and submit bovine TF sample.


Product Principle
  • Combine collection, culture, and transport in one IVD device.  
  • Highly selective prepared media in a device designed for in-vitro specimen transport and incubation.
  • Designed for nuclieuc acid-based testing (PCR)
Simple Convenience
  • Designed for specimen collection/ inoculation at point-of-care
  • Saves time, material cost and waste, reducing exposure to collected sample
Accurate Detection

TF medium is known to be effective in preserving T. foetus, T. suis, T. galliniae and P. hominis.

Time to Result

Optional: Incubate the TF-Transit Tube vertically in the dark at 32-37°C for 24-48 hours. Consult your testing lab for specific sample handling requirements.

The TF-Transit Tube is designed for safe transport. Inoculated TF-Transit Tubes should be transported within 48 hours after inoculation and maintained at 4-37°C.


TF Transit Tubes have a 12-month expiration from the date of manufacture.

Do not refrigerate or freeze the TF-Transit Tube. Upon receipt, store at 18-25°C, away from direct sunlight. Do not use expired tubes. Do not use a tube if the media appears to be cloudy, leaky, dark brown or dried.
