Sendai Virus (Cantell Strain)
The original virus was obtained from American Type Culture Collection (ATCC), product code VR-907, identified as Parainfluenza 1, Sendai/Cantell strain. It was passaged several times by inoculating the virus into the chorioallantoic sac of 9 to 11 day-old embryonated SPF chicken eggs. Virus is supplied as sterile, clarified allantoic fluid at a minimum titer of 2000 HA units/ml, or purified to 2 mg/ml.
