Technical Data
Varicella Zoster Virus, IE62 (VZV)
VZV is a member of the human herpes virus family which causes two distinct clinical manifestations: childhood chickenpox (Varicella) and shingles (Zoster). Varicella is the outcome of the primary infection with VZV, whereas, Zoster is the result of VZV reactivation from latently infected sensory ganglia which occurs predominantly in aging and immuno-suppressed individuals.

Suitable for use in Indirect Immunofluorescence, Immunoprecipitation, and Immunohistochemistry. Other applications have not been tested.
