SARS-Related Coronavirus 2 Lineage B.1.1.529; Omicron Variant (Isolate: hCoV-19/USA/MDHP20874/2021) is an enveloped, positive-sense single-stranded RNA virus from the Coronaviridae family and the Betacoronaviridae genus. Severe acute respiratory syndrome-related coronavirus 2 (SARS-CoV-2), isolate hCoV-19/USA/MDHP20874/2021 was isolated from a nasal swab from a human as part of surveillance testing, on November 27, 2021, in Maryland, USA. Under the nomenclature system introduced by GISAID (Global Initiative on Sharing All Influenza Data), SARS-CoV-2, isolate hCoV-19/USA/MD-HP20874/2021 is assigned lineage B.1.1.529 and GISAID clade GR using Phylogenetic Assignment of Named Global Outbreak LINeages (PANGOLIN) tool. Each frozen aliquot contains 1 mL of heat inactivated viral culture fluid. The pre-inactivation titer was determined from an infectious aliquot. Viral inactivation is verified after heat inactivation by the absence of viral growth in tissue culture-based infectivity assays.


Inactivated SARS-CoV-2 Lineage B.1.1.529 should be used within a Biological Safety Level 2 (BSL-2) facility in a biosafety cabinet (BSC). Please consult your institution’s regulations regarding the use of this product. For a detailed discussion on biological safety see the current edition of Biosafety in Microbiological and Biomedical Laboratories (BMBL), published by the CDC.
