00/416 Low Mutant Virus Reference for MAPREC assay of poliovirus type 1 (Sabin)
This Low Mutant Virus Reference (LMVR) is intended to be used as a control to determine whether an individual determination is valid in the MAPREC assay. The % 480-A and 525-C content of the candidate reference materials were chosen such that the biological variation inherent in the MAPREC method would lead to an invalid result in only about 1 in 100 determinations.
The material is of bovine origin. The material is certified to be obtained from animals taken from a closed herd in the female line since 1980, in which no animal has been clinically suspected of having BSE & which has not been fed rations containing ruminant derived protein during that period.
As with all materials of biological origin, this preparation should be regarded as potentially hazardous to health. It should be used and discarded according to your own laboratory’s safety procedures. Such safety procedures should include the wearing of protective gloves and avoiding the generation of aerosols. Care should be exercised in opening ampoules or vials, to avoid cuts.
