Prof Christina Guzzo’s lab has published a study in Virology Journal looking at UV treatment to inactivate Human Immunodeficiency Virus and the seasonal human coronavirus 229E. Her students Arvin Persaud and Jonathan Burnie published their results as “A UV-LED module that is highly effective at inactivating human coronaviruses and HIV-1“. Details of their work, and their collaboration with Toronto company Safe Antiviral Technologies Inc to apply these findings outside the lab is available from UofT News as “With the flip of a switch, UV-LED lights could be used to kill coronaviruses and other germs“.
