Viral Nucleic Acids

DNA Strand


The National Collection of Pathogenic Viruses (NCPV) is able to supply nucleic acid extracted from live virus, which is prepared from un-purified virus supernatant and also contains host cellular nucleic acid.  Viral nucleic acid can be useful for scientists who do not have the facilities for working with live viruses.

The material is tested for the presence of viral genome by NCPV scientists using PCR.

Please note: NCPV nucleic acids are a made to order product and require approximately four weeks for production.
