Nasopharyngeal (NP) Swabs Garner Traction in Swab and Viral Transport Medium Market Space
The lowly nasopharyngeal (NP) swabs, have emerged as frontrunners and have gained prominence as COVID-19 pandemic reaches fever pitch. NP swabs have come into the spotlight on the back of their extra-long, flexible and thin shafts that make it easy for them to reach the NP area inside the nose. In tandem, is their manufacturing process that is complex and reduces the eventuality of severe contamination of nucleic acids that interfere with PCR testing. Once used, the potency of virus on the swab is kept intact by transporting them in vials full of a solution known as viral transport media which keeps the virus viable and testable. Current test procedures necessitate the need to use two swabs, one for a flu test to rule out the need for coronavirus test and the second one if the flu test comes negative. NP swabs, through research were also found to be more effective in detecting coronavirus from day 8 of symptom onset.
Regions are opening doors for new testing sites which will give an uptick to demand for NP swabs and specialty swabs. Governments are also considering expanding testing material options to pave way for nasal swabs to keep up with demand for increased testing.

Key Stakeholders Double Down on Innovation and Stringency to Facilitate Large-Scale Testing
DiaSorin, a prominent manufacturer of swabs specifies NP swabs in 3 ml of Copan Universal Transport Media (UTM) or BD Viral Transport Media .Manufacturers also opine that swabs with a synthetic tip made from Dacron, nylon, rayon, aluminum and plastic be used. Conventional variants such as calcium alignate swabs that are traditionally used to obtain samples for bacterial culture may contain inhibitory substances that interfere with PCR testing.
Another company Longhorn Vaccines and Diagnostics has come out with a new product called as the PrimeStore Molecular Transport Medium (MTM) that has received the FDA clearance for respiratory samples. The mixture in this formulation is very easy to scale and made from unique reagents not utilized in COVID-19 testing chain. It also inactivates the virus thus obviating potential hazards in the transport process.
The Panther Fusion SARS-CoV-2 test, a brainchild of Hologic recommends the utilization of nylon or rayon tipped swab and has been effectively verified with BD VTM, Copan UTM and transport media formulations from Remel Micro Test. Amid rampant testing, the Centre for Disease Control (CDC) guidelines say that an oropharyngeal swab is an acceptable specimen if NP swabs run short.
