SARS-CoV-2 inactivation in 10 minutes
A recent study from the Roslin Institute in Edinburgh, UK concluded that virusPHIX+™ inactivates SARS-CoV-2 in as little as 10 minutes when treated at a 1:1 sample to reagent ratio at room temperature. Under these conditions, a 10log6 reduction in SARS-CoV-2 virus titre was recorded.
1 month stabilisation of SARS-CoV-2 at room temperature
Independent study by Qnostics UK demonstrated that virusPHIX+™ stabilises SARS-CoV-2 virus RNA for at least 33 days at 20°C. Sputum samples spiked with SARS-CoV-2 RNA were analysed over 33 days, and the Ct value was compared with virusPHIX+™ treated samples and control (no stabiliser added) – see below data.
