Varicella Zoster Virus (VZV) Strain: Ellen Lysate - 1mg
Varicella Zoster Virus (Strain: Ellen) is a Human Herpes Virus (HHV-3) with a diameter of approximately 200 nm. It is enveloped icosahedral virus that contains a nucleocapsid and double-stranded linear DNA. The virus is purified using sucrose density gradient ultracentrifugation, disrupted in the presence of 0.5% Triton X-100 non-ionic detergent/0.6M KCl, and heat inactivated. Each frozen aliquot contains 1 mg of viral lysate per the BCA total protein assay. Viral inactivation is verified by the absence of viral growth in tissue culture-based infectivity assays.
