The World Health Organization (WHO) just added Methylene Blue and Light as a supported Personal Protective Equipment (PPE) decontamination method in the “Rational use of personal protective equipment for COVID-19 and considerations during severe shortages” interim guidelines.
Arbovirologist, professor, and GWU lab director Dr. Chris Mores has just returned from Africa, supporting local and international field teams in the fight against Ebola in the DRC. Though COVID-19 has taken center stage over the last year, it’s important to remember other deadly viruses haven’t taken a day off. More with Chris Mores on fighting pathogens around the world.
After years of fundamental research on photosensitizers, Belinda Heyne, Ph.D, now applies concepts of photochemistry and photobiology to the fight against pathogens. Her expertise and her lab’s unique ability to measure singlet oxygen directly make her critically important to Singletto’s ongoing research efforts and technology development. More with expert Belinda Heyne.
In collaboration with the WHO, CDC, and a consortium of labs around the world, Singletto founders Drs. Chen, Lendvay and Clark, conducted extensive research on the decontamination effects of the light-activated dye Methylene Blue on viruses, including SARS-CoV-2. The positive results of such study have been pre-published on medRxiv. Watch our video to learn more.
