EQAPOL Virus Diversity Panel

The EQAPOL Virus Diversity panel is composed of high/titer cultured viruses representing the geographic and genetic diversity of HIV. HIV sources are cultured to high titer/high volume and then stored as neat culture supernatant, as well as spiked into defibrinated plasma at two different concentrations. Viruses are evaluated, characterized, and fully sequenced before adding them to a central repository where they will be available to the research community. For the EQAPOL Viral Diversity Program, 25 new viruses are cultured to high titer/high volume each year. Below, you can search the current inventory available from EQAPOL and request samples. Samples can be shipped to NIAID-approved laboratories. There is no cost of the samples, only the cost of shipping. If you have any questions, contact us at EQAPOL@duke.edu
