We are proud to share 2 reports published by Public Health England who have performed inactivation studies of our RNA stabilisation medium, virusPHIX™ and virusPHIX-LV™ on SARS-CoV-2 spiked samples.

Both reagents have shown inactivation of SARS-CoV-2 within 10 minutes at room temperature.

virusPHIX-LV™ is a sister product to virusPHIX™ developed to have a lower viscosity for optimal pipetting using automated robots used in the Lighthouse laboratories (Ortho, Hamilton & Tecan).

Our virusPHIX™ family of reagents inactivate SARS-CoV-2, making it safer to handle, transport and dispose of clinical samples – as well as preserving the viral RNA at room temperature to enable repeat testing if required. Not only that, virusPHIX™ is a guanidine-free product that contains no toxic materials. We have developed a number of virusPHIX™ reagents for different purposes, including a lower viscosity version for automated testing, and are currently validating another version for its compatibility with LAMP.
