What Viruses Should I Test?
Selecting your virus panel depends on the unique characteristics of your product. Accounting for raw material inputs and environmental variables are instrumental when selecting your virus panel. Through Texcell’s virus panel, you can find the viruses that best meet your testing needs
Typical Viruses Evaluated During a Viral Clearance Study Include:
- RNA Enveloped (HIV-1, XMuLV, EMuLV, & BVDV)
- RNA Non-enveloped (Reo 3, HAV, & Polio)
- DNA Enveloped (PRV & HSV)
- DNA Non-enveloped (PPV, MMV, & SV40)
Texcell’s Virus Stocks
The quality of the virus stock utilized during a viral clearance evaluation is critical. High titer virus stocks with low DNA and protein concentrations, in addition to high monomer content, are best suited for evaluating virus removal and inactivation processes. Our team of scientists has worked diligently to develop quality virus stocks specifically for utilization in viral clearance studies.
Texcell’s Virus Panel
Most of our viruses are available in titers ≥8 logs (≥108 infectious particules/ml). High titer virus stocks help to optimize LRV results by:
- Allowing use of lower spiking volume
- Maintaining the integrity of the test article

Texcell also offers Extra Pure (XP) stocks. XP virus stocks are ideal for use in filtration studies. The low DNA and protein concentrations and high monomer content of these virus stocks help reduce flux decay that could be induced by the virus spike.
