Microwaving the samples in any media compatible with dowstream applications

A: Not for current challenges
Closed

Microwave irradiation (in regular microwave ovens) has proved to be an efficient, cheap and convenient way of viral inactivation, allowing subsequent detection by RT-PCR or immunological methods. The media of use could be any compatible media (PBS, Tris-HCL, Hepes...) with subsequent applications.

Have you validated this method, if so, how and what were the results of the validation?

No, I haven't. The method is reported in several articles, one of them dealing with the inactivation and detection of avian infectious bronchitis virus (IBV) and avian pneumovirus (APV).

How quickly could this be deployed and what are the dependencies?

Immediately.

What is the likely production volume?

No production involved.

What are the risks and barriers to using this at scale?

No risks or barriers.

Who are you already partnering with on this?

Nobody, it's just an idea.
