Native HSV-2 Protein was produced in BSC-1 cell line.
Tissue culture medium.
This antigen was inactivated using gamma irradiation. Effectiveness is defined as the inability of an inactivated virus preparation to produce CPE after five days of incubation on a BSC-1 monolayer.
This antigen preparation should be sonicated immediately prior to use to ensure that the preparation is uniform. This preparation may be used as is in a variety of immunoassay formats or may be further purified to meet the needs of a particular assay format. Grade 2 antigen is widely used for both IgG and IgM detection in assays which include EIA with polystyrene and latex solid phases.
The product will be expired one year after receiving if stored properly.
Keep it at 4ºC if used within a month. For long term storage, split it into small aliquots and keep at -80ºC. Avoid repeated freezing and thawing.
This material has been inactivated and should contain no infectious material. However, this material should still be handled with caution as potentially hazardous.
