Recombinant Albumin for Stabilization of Live-Attenuated Viral Vaccines

Enhanced liquid-phase stability of live-attenuated Flavivirus vaccines using recombinant albumin The single-stranded RNA viruses belonging to the genus Flavivirus (family, Flaviviridae) are significant to global public health due to the high rates of morbidity and mortality they cause.1 For example, Yellow Fever sickens approximately 200,000 people and kills 30,000 annually.2 Other viruses belonging to this …

Virus Production Using VERO Cells with Microcarriers Without Serum in Chemically Defined Cell Culture Media

{{cta(‘8131aa10-8816-4d2d-afeb-8063cce10f4e’,’justifyright’)}}Workflow Summary: Combine supplements of OptiVERO. Prepare complementary reagents. Wash cells to remove traces of FBS and harvest from growth surface. Seed in OptiVERO and expand in cell culture flasks for at least 3 passages to allow for adaptation. Prepare microcarrier system, inoculate with VERO cells, and incubate 3-4 days for adhesion and expansion. Add virus of interest …
