May 7, 2009

It has come to our attention that many customers are experiencing problems with the availability of rapid influenza tests and viral transport media. Some manufacturers are experiencing backorders; but others say they still have a supply.

We have been informed that manufacturers are ramping up production and are receiving new lots of product on a daily and/or weekly basis. To meet the needs of all customers, many manufacturers have implemented manual allocation of products. Please contact the manufacturer directly for product availability.
