Noyce, J.O., Michels, H. and Keevil, C.W. (2007) Inactivation of influenza A virus on copper versus stainless steel surfaces Applied and Environmental Microbiology, 73, (8), pp. 2748-2750. (doi:10.1128/AEM.01139-06).

Record type: Article


Influenza A virus particles (2 x 106) were inoculated onto copper or stainless steel and incubated at 22°C at 50 to 60% relative humidity. Infectivity of survivors was determined by utilizing a defined monolayer with fluorescent microscopy analysis. After incubation for 24 h on stainless steel, 500,000 virus particles were still infectious. After incubation for 6 h on copper, only 500 particles were active.
