New method to test domestic laundry detergents against viruses

With the paper Konkol et al. we aimed to develop a method to assess the virucidal performance of domestic laundry in a lab-scale washing machine (Rotawash) based on EN 17658 in Cooperation with Henkel. The method developed was led by our joint PhD student Justyna Konkol in cooperation with the Henkel team led by Dr. Mirco Weide in Düsseldorf, our Dr. Brill Virus experts in Bremen Dr. Britta Becker and Dr. Dajana Paulmann as well as from our cooperation partner Professor Dr. Eike Steinmann from Ruhr-University Bochum, Professor Dr. Andreas Dotzauer from University Bremen as well as our Dr. Brill + Prof. Bockmühl lab director Dr. Britta Brands from Kleve.
With this great team approach we are now prepared to test domestic laundry detergents against e. g. Vaccinia and Norovirus. If you are interested or have questions please contact us. Link to publication: Here
