The Use of Detergent Supplemented Guanidine-Based Buffers for Viral Inactivation in Monkeypox Diagnostic Testing

The UK government website has recently approved the use of detergent supplemented guanidine-based buffers for viral inactivation in Monkeypox diagnostic testing.

Did you know Life Science Group’s Inactivir® buffer is suitable for this application?

The Inactivir® range of Viral Inactivation Buffers has been developed to be used in sample tubes to inactivate viral pathogens that are present in patient or other potentially pathogenic samples. The inactivation of viral pathogens on sample collection using Inactivir® will facilitate risk assessments that reduce the requirement for Category 2+/3 handling of potentially pathogenic samples. It will also increase both the safety of workers and the speed and ease of testing.
