Improving the virus particle: infectious unit ratio is a continuing goal for animal virologists. It is demonstrated for an influenza A virus that decreasing the size of the inoculum volume to 10 mul per well of a 96-well plate was as effective as using centrifugal force with inoculum up to 250 mul. Both achieved a 7.5-fold increase in infectivity in monolayers of MDCK cells compared with standard conditions. The underlying principle of both methods is to bring virus particles into close contact with cell receptors. (C) 2001 Elsevier Science B.V. All rights reserved.
