Recently described systems for efficiently growing HCV in cell culture provide powerful new tools with which to dissect the life cycle of this important human pathogen. This chapter describes methods for measuring the infectivity of HCV produced in cell culture or recovered from animals experimentally infected with the cell culture–produced virus.
