Recommended Host
Vero cells (ATCC® CCL-81™)
Growth Conditions

Temperature: 33°C

Recommendations for Infection: Plate cells 18-24 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., 0.02). Adsorb 1-2 hours at 33°C in a humidified 5% CO2 atmosphere. End adsorption by adding virus growth medium.

Incubation: 7-15 days at 33°C in a humidified 5% CO2 atmosphere, until CPE is progressed through 80% of the monolayer.
