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 Good immunogen in rabbits. No two-way cross serum neutralization or HA with 37 prototypes. Related to strain Dugan (79-18025) by serum neutralization and HAI. HA at low titer in rat red blood cells. No HA in rhesus monkey or human O type red blood cells. GenBank: DQ315364.2.
Effect on Host
CPE, cell rounding, clumping, sloughing
Recommended Host
293 [HEK-293] (ATCC® CRL-1573™)
Growth Conditions Temperature: 37°C
Recommendations for Infection: Plate cells 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. 0.1). Adsorb 1-2 hours at 37°C in a humidified 5% CO2 atmosphere, rocking every 15 minutes to redistribute inoculum. End adsorption by adding virus growth medium.
Incubation: 2-7 days
Effect on Host
CPE, cell rounding, clumping, sloughing
