New evidence suggests the West Nile virus can be transmitted during blood transfusion from an asymptomatic donor. However, it is now possible to use pulsed ultraviolet laser light to inactivate viruses such as West Nile at large production scales. These experimental data show that using laser light on virus-treated media can render biological products free of contaminating viruses without compromising the biological activity essential to cell cultures.
