Live & Inactivated Coronaviruses for Assay Development
Microbiologics has both live and inactivated whole viruses available for two different human coronaviruses – 229E and OC43, which are distant relatives of the 2019 nCoV and minimally homologous.
These viruses, while not 100% homologous to 2019-nCoV or SARS CoV, contain the entire RNA virus genome and may be useful for your assay development purposes. They are among the four coronaviruses that are associated with the human common cold. The two other human cold viruses, HKU and NL66, are available as subgenomic DNA clones. Microbiologics is currently preparing RNA transcripts of the 2019n-CoV to be paired with a recommended primer probe sequence provided by the CDC.
Microbiologics has virologists who can design, build, and perform antiviral assays to test virus susceptibility against coronavirus 229E or OC43. Our skills also enable us to pseudotype VLPs with 2019n-CoV spike protein for binding inhibition studies.
