The Covid vaccine, which can be stored at room temperature, is being developed by the Indian Institute of Science (IISC) in Bangalore, India. The news was reported by Anandabazar Digital and Bangalore Mirror.
At a time when a variety of covid vaccines are needed in India and a few foreign vaccines are awaiting government approval, experts at the Indian Institute of Scientific Research (IISC) say the initiative is promising.
According to the researchers, the main feature of IISC’s Covid vaccine is that it can be kept active at room temperature. The issue of temperature is one of the major problems facing Covid vaccines. Even if the temperature rises, it will not be difficult to move the IISC vaccine from one place to another.
The refrigeration system does not need to be used to preserve this vaccine. As a result, there will be no risk of spoilage of the vaccine. The IBSC vaccine can be stored at an average room temperature of 21 to 25 degrees Celsius, Anandabazar Digital said.
Raghavan Varadarajan, head professor of the IISC’s vaccine project, told Anandabazar Digital: “We have tested on rats and guinea pigs. .
Those antibodies can easily inactivate the SARS-COV-2 virus that has entered rats and guinea pigs. The virus enters the cell and is no longer able to reproduce. As a result, there is no infection.
