Technical Data
Varicella Zoster Virus, Strain Ellen (VZV)
Varicella Zoster Virus (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 immunosuppressed individuals.

Suitable for use in Indirect Immunofluorescent, Western Blot, ELISA and Immunoprecipitation. Other applications have not been tested.

Recommended Dilution:
Optimal dilutions to be determined by the researcher.

Source: Tissue culture

Storage and Stability:
May be stored at 4C for short-term only. For long-term storage and to avoid repeated freezing and thawing, add sterile glycerol (40-50%), aliquot and store at -20C or colder. Aliquots are stable for at least 12 months at -20C. For maximum recovery of product, centrifuge the original vial after thawing and prior to removing the cap. Further dilutions can be made in assay buffer.
