34 Standard tests for viral antigens and nucleic acids Arboviruses replicating in mosquito suspension cell cultures at 20-30~ may be detected by subpassaging to monolayer cultures in which CPE may be evident or by HA/HI, EIA, complement-fixation, or nucleic acid tests for the specific viruses suspected. Hepatitis A virus replicates in primary rhesus MK cultures in i - 4 weeks but is non-cytolytic; it is detected by EIA or hybridization tests. The standard tests for viral antigens and viral RNA or DNA, such as these, can of course be applied to any culture of any suspected virus, regardless of the type and degree of CPE observed.

3% infected) dilutions. 3 x - 1 . 0 ) = - 6 . , the Virus isolation and quantitation (B) dilution that will infect 50% of the test units inoculated. The reciprocal of this number gives rise to the virus titer in terms of infectious doses per unit volume. 1 the following formula is used to directly estimate the 50% end point: Highest dilution giving 100% CPE + 89 total number of test units showing CPE number of test units per dilution = TCID5o - 5 + -89~= - 6 . 3 TCID50 ml-1 The principle involved in the TCIDso experiment is the same for either animal deaths (LDso) or infection of a developing fertile hen's egg (EIDso).

If testing is not possible within 5 days after collection, the specimens should be frozen on dry ice and stored at -70~ until processed, although this may decrease the amount of viable virus. When processing for viral isolation, the specimens are treated with antibiotics, vigorously mixed, clarified at 1000 g for 3 min at 4~ to remove cell debris and bacteria, and inoculated onto appropriate cell culture monolayers in glass tubes. , HLF, HELF, MRC5, Wl38), human lung mucoepidermoid cells (NCI-H292) to replace MK cells for most applications (Castells et al 1990; Hierholzer et al 1993b), and human rhabdomyosarcoma cells (RD) for the broadest coverage of viruses within practical limitations (Hierholzer 1993; Hierholzer and Hatch 1985; Matthey et al 1992; Meguro et al 1979; Smith et al 1986; Woods and Young 1988).
