Previous studies indicated that UV irradiation of the picornaviruses poliovirus and hepatitis A virus abolishes their binding to cell surface receptors
Other methods that result in inactivation of picornaviruses and other nonenveloped viruses include sodium hypochlorite, formaldehyde, and proteinase K.
