How can AIDS Virus be inactivated?

AIDS Virus is completely inactivated by treatment with:

  • 10% Household bleach
  • 50% ethanol
  • 35% isopropanol
  • 1% Nonidet P40
  • 0.5% Lysol
  • 0.5% paraformaldehyde
  • 0.3% hydrogen peroxide

The virus is also inactivated by extremes in pH (pH 1.0 and 13.0).

Virus is rapidly inactivated (<1 minute) by exposure to undiluted household bleach.

Virus is readily inactivated in liquids or 10% serum by heating at 56 C for 10 minutes.

Lyophilized blood products would need to be heated at 68 C for 72 hours to ensure inactivation of contaminating virus.
