Use of molecular gel column to prepare potato virus X inocula for antisera

  • James Munro


A simple technique has been developed to obtain purified potato virus X in physiological saline solution by passage through a gel column. The virus solution is the concentrated by dialysis with polyethylene glycol for use in intravenous injections for the production of potato virus X-immune rabbit antiserum.
