Assessing the ability of two commercially available bacterial storage and transport systems to be used in the detection of viral DNA. Storage conditions and the presence of contaminating bacteria were analysed in this project. Viral DNA could be detected following storage of up to 144 hours at 4ºC and room temperature for both systems. However, the presence of bacteria had a significant effect on one of the transport systems, reducing virus recovery rates.
