CMV Shell Vial Results

Slide 11

April 2012

This next slide shows the coverslips after they have been removed from the shell vials and mounted onto slides. The cell sheet on the coverslip is stained with a monoclonal antibody for a specific virus and then the coverslip is examined under a fluorescent microscope. The image to the right shows a positive result for cytomegalovirus with classic green nuclear staining.
