Effect of centrifuging shell vials at 3,500 x g on detection of viruses in clinical specimens.

PMID:  8077407     Owner:  NLM     Status:  MEDLINE    
An increase in shell vial centrifugation force to 3,500 x g and a concomitant reduction in spin time to 15 min did not decrease the sensitivity of detecting viruses in clinical specimens compared with the accepted practice of using 700 x g for 40 min. No damage to the cell monolayer (ML) at the higher g force was observed. Toxicity to the ML is decreased with the shorter spin, probably because of reduced time of contact between the specimen and the ML.
