VR-1986HK Intended Use
What is the intended use of ATCC® VR-1986HK ™?

ATCC® VR-1986HK™ is intended for use in molecular assays or as a process control (e.g., viral RNA extraction through qPCR amplification process). ATCC® VR-1986HK™ can also be used to make a dilution series to estimate level of detection[WC1] . However, this product is not suitable as a whole-cell antigen preparation because the protein content is largely contributed by the host cell and the fetal bovine serum used during virus propagation.
