The monolayers may be tilted after 15 min to avoid the cells drying up, although this step may not be necessary. 8. Remove unadsorbed virus- if many assays are to be done use a suction apparatus. Many virologists wash the monolayer at this stage with sterile PBS but others consider this step optional. 9. During the last five minutes of virus adsorption remove the agar overlays from the water bath, thus permitting them to cool. Beware of solidification trial and error will give experience of how long this takes.
Herpes simplex virus, a useful class experiment. This virus can be titrated by plaque, pock, TCID50, LD50 and total particle counting methods, thus allowing the accuracy, sensitivity and practicality of each method to be demonstrated. This section of the chapter highlights the essential features of these methods drawing upon specific virus assays as examples. The reader should be aware however, that this book is not a manual for all viruses but serves to outline the basic techniques. Specific details for individual viruses can be obtained from the published literature.
