West Nile Virus (WNV) Lineage 2 (Strain: 1986) is an enveloped icosahedral Flavivirus that contains positive-sense, single-stranded, linear RNA.
This West Nile Virus was collected from an American crow specimen in August of 2003 from Albany County, NY*; NCBI GenBank Accession No. DQ164189.
Each frozen aliquot contains 1 mL of heat inactivated viral culture fluid. The pre-inactivation titer was determined from an infectious aliquot.
Viral inactivation is verified after heat inactivation by the absence of viral growth in tissue culture-based infectivity assays.
Heat inactivated viral culture fluids are sold as consumable testing materials. The suitability and performance characteristics should be determined by your laboratory for each intended usage.
