Coronavirus CoV – Efficacy of a Portable UV-C Room Sanitizing Device

MRSA-UV’s Helix 450XL Portable UV-C Room Sanitizer was successfully tested against Human Coronavirus (HCoV) in 2015 by Antimicrobial Test Laboratory in Round Rock, TX.

Human coronavirus 229E (HCoV), ATCC VR-740 HCoV is an enveloped, positive-sense RNA virus in the Coronaviridae family.  Coronaviruses cause mostly mild to moderate upper respiratory infections year-round in humans. Zoonotic strains of coronavirus have also recently emerged (e.g. SARS-CoV and MERS-CoV) and become of great concern due to their virulence and high mortality rates.
