Coronavirus Disease 2019: Coronaviruses and Blood Safety

After the discovery of the 2019 novel coronavirus, the virus responsible for COVID-19 was renamed the Severe Acute Respiratory Syndrome Coronavirus 2 (SARS-CoV-2). CoVs, among the largest known RNA Viruses, includes 4 genera, including betacoronaviruses, which includes SARS and MERS. It has been found that transmission of this genus of viruses can be transmitted via blood products. Researchers found that Amotosalen with UV-A light, Riboflavin with UV-B light, and UV-C light can all inactivate the SARS and MERS virus in blood.

Inactivation of Ebola virus and Middle East respiratory syndrome coronavirus in platelet concentrates and plasma by ultraviolet C light and methylene blue plus visible light, respectively

Both THERAFLEX UV‐Platelets (UVC) and THERAFLEX MB‐Plasma (MB/light) effectively reduce EBOV and MERS‐CoV infectivity in platelets and plasma, respectively.
