LP36602-8   Shell vial culture
Virus culture is often more sensitive than trying to detect viruses directly in clinical samples. Shell vial culture is a modification of the conventional cell culture technique for rapid detection of viruses in vitro. The technique involves inoculation of the clinical specimen on to cell monolayer grown on a cover slip in a shell vial culture tube, followed by low speed centrifugation and incubation. This system works on the principle that the low speed centrifugation enhances viral infectivity to the susceptible cells. It is thought that the minor trauma to the cell surface produced as a result of low speed centrifugation mechanical force enhances the viral entry in to the cells, which in turn reduces the total time taken for the virus to produce infection of cells. Virus may be detected by direct fluorescent antibody (DFA) or indirect fluorescent antibody (IFA) staining within hours or days of inoculation. Source: Regenstrief LOINC
