Thermo Fisher Scientific Invitrogen Intact Virus Precipitation Reagent, Dynabeads Intact Virus Enrichment Kits

Thermo Fisher Scientific has launched the Invitrogen Intact Virus Precipitation Reagent and the Dynabeads Intact Virus Enrichment Kits. Both are optimized to isolate intact SARS-CoV-2 virus particles, including infectious virus, inactivated virus, and virus-like particles. The Intact Virus Precipitation Reagent isolates intact SARS-CoV-2 virus from large, dilute samples in three steps that take less than three hours. The Intact Virus Enrichment Kits allow for high-throughput enrichment of virus in less than 20 minutes and can be used with any of the Kingfisher family of instruments. Both products are designed for virology research, immunological and serological viral research, high-throughput virus screening, protein analysis, cell analysis, and nucleic acid research.
