Rhinoviruses cause more common colds than any of the other viruses associated with upper respiratory tract infections. More than 100 distinct virus serotypes have been defined, and VIRAPUR has grown and purified 15 of these. Rhinovirus is a picornavirus; an unencapsidated 30 nm diameter icosahedral capsid with single stranded + sense RNA.

VIRAPUR's purification process results in high titer virus in milligram quantities with greater than 1010 infectious units per ml.
