Inactivation & Safety — Each lot of antigen is inactivated using gamma radiation and this inactivation verified using a sensitive tissue culture based infectivity assay.
Applications — Positive control for antigen detection, Antibody detection (ELISA).
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. View our Quality Policy and ISO Certification.
