1X Dulbecco's Phosphate Buffered Saline (DPBS)
 
 
A shortage of coronavirus testing supplies is creating a bottleneck for patients needing to be tested globally. These supplies include the Viral Transport Medium (VTM) or Universal Transport Medium (UTM).
 
1st BASE is ramping up the manufacturing of Dulbecco’s Phosphate Buffered Saline (#DPBS), an alternative to VTM/UTM, to support these shortages.
 
Dulbecco’s Phosphate Buffered Saline (DPBS) is a water-based salt solution with a specific formulation that is able to maintain the genetic information of the virus prior to testing.
