Fundamentals of Ultracentrifugal Virus Purification

Fundamentals of Ultracentrifugal Virus Purification content piece image

In recent years, it has become a standard practice within virus research to purify and analyze genomes and identify viruses from samples using commercial kits. Established viruses and their genomes can be recognized even in a mixed state. However, to carry out a detailed investigation into the nature of novel viruses, in order to better understand how to tackle outbreaks, it is first necessary to refine the virus particles to yield a high purity.

Download this app note to discover why experts recommend ultracentrifugation to purify virus particles, including detailed information on:

  • Its advantages over alternative methods
  • An example protocol for a specific virus
  • What to look out for when performing ultracentrifugation
