Recommended Host LLC-MK2 Derivative (ATCC® CCL-7.1™)
Growth Conditions Temperature: 37°C
Recommendations for Infection: Plate cells 24-48 hours prior to infection and infect when cultures are 70-80% confluent. Remove medium and inoculate with a small volume of virus (e.g. 1 mL per 25 cm2) diluted to provide an optimal MOI (e.g. 0.1). Adsorb 1-2 hours at 37°C in a humidified 5% CO2 atmosphere, rocking every 20-30 minutes to redistribute inoculum. End adsorption by adding virus growth medium.
