SARS-CoV-2 (Isolate: Hong Kong/VM20001061/2020) Culture Fluid (Heat Inactivated)
- 1 mL
SARS-Related Coronavirus 2 (Isolate: Hong Kong/VM20001061/2020) is an enveloped, positive-sense single-stranded RNA virus from the Coronaviridae family and the Betacoronaviridae genus. This virus was isolated from a nasopharyngeal aspirate and throat swab from an adult male patient January 22, 2020 in Hong Kong. The complete genome of the clinical isolate SARS-CoV-2 Hong Kong/VM20001061/2020 has been sequenced (GISAID: EPI_ISL_412028).
Each frozen aliquot contains 1 mL of heat inactivated viral culture fluid. The pre-inactivation titer was determined from an infectious aliquot.
Viral inactivation is verified after heat inactivation by the absence of viral growth in tissue culturebased infectivity assays.
Heat inactivated viral culture fluids are sold as consumable testing materials. The suitability and performance characteristics should be determined by your laboratory for each intended usage.
These products are NOT intended for use in the manufacture or processing of injectable products subject to licensure under section 351 of the Public Health Service Act or for any other product intended for administration to humans.
FOR RESEARCH USE ONLY. NOT FOR USE IN DIAGNOSTIC PROCEDURES.
SARS-CoV-2 Virus is a Biosafety Level 3 microorganism when infectious, and must be used within a Biological Safety Level 2 facility or biosafety cabinet when inactivated. Please consult your institution’s regulations regarding the use of this product.
