Semi purified viral lysate (Strain VZ-10). Contains intact viral particles and viral proteins. Inactivated by gamma irradiation.
Varicella Zoster virus (VZV) belongs to the herpesvirus family. VZV is a large virus with a diameter of about 180 – 200 nm; its dense core is 100 nm in diameter and is covered by an icosahedral capsid composed of 162 tubular capsomers, in turn covered by a lipid bilayer envelope. The core contains linear doublestranded DNA with a molecular weight of about 108 Daltons. VZV infections induces the production of specific proteins and glycoproteins by the host cell.
Inactivation & Safety — Each lot of antigen is inactivated using gamma radiation and this inactivation verified using a sensitive tissue culture based infectivity assay.
Applications — IgG and IgM ELISA, Western Blot, Microparticle based EIA, Lymphocyte proliferation assays
