Varicella Zoster Virus (VZV) Antigen
Catalog No: BA104VS
Lot No: Lot specific
Agent: Varicella zoster virus, strain Ellen
Culture System: HEL 299 cell culture
VZV infected cells are harvested and virus is extracted by alkaline treatment and sonication. The preparation is purified by ultracentrifugation through a sucrose cushion. The resulting antigen consists of a high concentration of virus and viral components, it may contain residual host cell material. The antigen is suspended in 100 mM glycine buffer, pH 9.5.
Physical inactivation. Inactivity is confirmed by attempted growth under original culture conditions. Since no procedure can guarantee absolute sterility, the reagent should be handled with appropriate safety precautions.
Protein Concentration: Lot specific, specified in mg/mL. Determined by Bradford assay (BioRad) using BSA as standard.
Analysis: By ELISA
Date of Manufacture: Lot specific
Manufacturer: Institut VerionSerion GmbH, Germany
