Pathogen Destruction Report
Statement of Purpose:
In accordance with CDC guidelines, a bio safety level 3 laboratory is required for testing SARS-CoV-2, the virus that causes COVID-19
There are a limited number of bio safety level (“BSL”) 3 laboratories available due to the high demand for COVID-19 testing for vaccines and treatments
The SteriLumen disinfecting mirror and disinfecting drain were tested at ResInnova Laboratories, a BSL 2 laboratory, against OC43 human coronavirus, a strain of human coronavirus (beta group) that is genetically similar to SARS-CoV-2
The American Society for Testing listed OC43 in their top four surrogates for SARS-CoV-2 (see https://www.astm.org/COMMIT/GuidanceCOVID19SurrogateSel_April242020press.pdf)
ResInnova stated in its Report, date June 30, 2020, that “…it is expected that SARS CoV-2, the virus that causes COVID-19, will be killed in a similar manner to OC43.”
