Treatment of viruses, bacteria and fungi with vivoPHIX can reduce or inactivate infectivity and/or growth. Several results have demonstrated that vivoPHIX reduces viral infectivity and stops bacterial and yeast growth. Please contact us for a list of inactivated sample types.
E. coli DH5α was treated with vivoPHIX for 1 hour before plating on agar and incubating overnight at 37°C. There was no bacterial growth compared with the no treatment control. S. cerevisiae was treated in a similar manner and, compared with RNAlater treatment no growth was observed.
