ViveST Biolological Sample Transport Device
What is ViveST?
ViveST is a revolutionary device that allows the user to ship, store and catalog many specimens that used to require refrigerated, frozen or cryogenic conditions.
The device consists of a proprietary co-polymer matrix with specially-designed hydrophobic surface coatings. Once a liquid sample is loaded onto the matrix and it is properly dried it is then stabilized for ambient transport and storage. Recovery from the matrix consists of simply putting the dried sample back into suspension in the appropriate buffer with very little mechanical manipulation.
