Biosafety Level 2

Biosafety  classification is based on U.S. Public Health Service Guidelines, it is the responsibility of the customer to ensure that their facilities comply with biosafety regulations for their own country.

Product Format frozen 1 mL per vial
Storage Conditions -70°C or colder
Comments Not inactivated by ether. Contains soluble group-specific complement fixation antigen. Agglutinates rat red blood cells incompletely.
Effect on Host
CPE, refractile rounding, clumping and sloughing
Recommended Host
HeLa (ATCC CCL-2)
Growth Conditions Temperature: 37°C
Recommendations for Infection: Plate cells 24-48 hours prior to infection and infect when cultures are 80-90% 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.
Incubation: 2-3 days
Effect on Host
CPE, refractile rounding, clumping and sloughing
