Comments Please see ATCC Virology Guide for more detailed information on propagation
Effect on Host

Recommended Host
HEp-2 (ATCC® CCL-23™)
Growth Conditions Temperature: 37°C
Recommendations for Infection: For best results, infection should be performed on an 80-100% confluent, 24-48 hour old cellular monolayer. Sonicate seed material for 20 seconds at approximately 240W to disrupt cells.  Prepare dilution of chlamydia in minimum amount of volume (e.g. 1 mL per 25 cm2).  Remove cell growth medium and inoculate with disrupted material. For adsorption, centrifuge at 1500 x g at 25°C for 1 hour.  End adsorption by adding agent growth medium.
Incubation:  Incubate infected culture for 72 hours at 37°C in a humidified 5% CO2 atmosphere.
Preservation: Perform slow controlled rate freeze.
