Each frozen aliquot contains 1mL of UV inactivated viral culture fluid by centrifugation to remove cellular debris. The pre-inactivation titer was determined from an infectious aliquot.
Viral inactivation is verified after UV inactivation by the absence of viral growth in tissue culture-based infectivity assays.
UV inactivated viral culture fluids are sold as consumable testing materials. The suitability and performance characteristics should be determined by your laboratory for each intended usage.
