Studies on the efficiency of measles virus antigen production using VERO cell culture in a microcarrier system.


1. A large amount of antigen is required to conduct seroepidemiologic surveys of measles. Thus, a process to obtain measles virus antigen using a bioreactor was standardized. 2. The virus was grown in a 3.7-1 culture of VERO cells using a Celligen cell culture system containing 2 mg/ml of microcarriers (cytodex I) at 37 degrees C and 60 rpm. The cultures… (More)
