Scriptase II is used in the validation of potential SARS-CoV-2 antiviral agent

We are proud that our products support the scientists in their research projects:

A group of the Research Center for global Agromedicine in Japan analyzed the antiviral potential of a medicinal herb (Saxifraga spinulosa) on SARS-CoV-2, Influenza A and Noroviruses. Disruption of viral genomes and proteins were determined by gel electrophoresis, electron microscopy and RT-PCR, for which they have used our FastGene® Scriptase II 5x Ready Mix OdT.

In this paper they could show that 25 µg/mL of a pyrogallol-enriched fraction (Fr 1C) inactivates >99.6% of SARS-CoV-2 within 10 seconds. Showing the potential of Fr1C as a novel antiviral disinfectant.
