The resulting antigen preparation consists of virus and viral components and residual host cell material. The antigen is presented in 100 mM Glycine buffer at pH 9.5.
Inactivation: This product has been treated with Beta-propiolactone. Confirmed inactive by attempted growth under original culture conditions. Since no procedure can guarantee absolute sterility, the reagent should be handled with appropriate safety precautions.
