Cytomegalovirus is the largest virus known to infect humans. Microbix uses a proprietary CMV culture method to produce an antigen preparation that presents a full range of CMV antigens, meaning EL-01-02 can be used for IgG, IgM, and IgA detection.
Each antigen lot is tested for potency using ELISA, and compared to a reference antigen. This ensures the amount of viral protein in each batch is consistent. The total protein concentration reported includes both viral and non-viral proteins, with the ratio dependent on the purity of the antigen.

Inactivation and Safety
Each lot of CMV antigen is inactivated using gamma radiation and this inactivation verified using a sensitive tissue culture based infectivity assay.
