Streck establishes partnership with Longhorn Vaccines and Diagnostics to distribute PrimeStore® MTM worldwide

La Vista, Nebraska – Streck is pleased to announce its new partnership with Longhorn Vaccines and Diagnostics to distribute its flagship product, PrimeStore® Molecular Transport Media (MTM), worldwide. PrimeStore® MTM is an FDA-cleared collection device for inactivation, stabilization and ambient temperature transportation of biological samples.

“Streck is a true innovator in the sample collection field, and one of the most trusted companies in the diagnostic industry,” said Jeff Fischer, co-founder and president of Longhorn. “PrimeStore® MTM is a natural fit for distribution by Streck, as Longhorn shares its dedication to providing unique stabilization solutions for clinical testing and research.”

“Streck is excited to enter the transport media space with a partner whose products have transformed the field,” said Matthew Kreifels, vice president of Sales, MarCom and Business Development at Streck. “We look forward to sharing this molecular testing tool with labs worldwide.”

Nucleic acid-based testing can rapidly identify infection-causing pathogens, providing the necessary information for health care professionals to quickly implement appropriate and effective treatment strategies. However, the collection, transport and handling of infectious disease specimens is often complicated by safety concerns for personnel involved in testing and the inherent instability of the microbial nucleic acids of interest. With PrimeStore® MTM, the transport and testing process is streamlined and safe.
