Classification Chlamydiaceae
Agent Chlamydia suis Everett et al.
Strain S45 (porcine isolate)
Biosafety Level 2
Product Format frozen
Storage Conditions Vapor phase of liquid nitrogen
Comments Please see ATCC Virology Guide for more detailed information on propagation
Effect on Host
Intracellular inclusion bodies visualized by fluorescent staining
Recommended Host
HEp-2 (ATCC® CCL-23™)
Growth Conditions Temperature: 37°C
Recommendations for Infection: For best results, infection should be performed on an 80-100% confluent, 24-48 hour old cellular monolayer. Sonicate seed material for 20 seconds at approximately 240W to disrupt cells.  Prepare dilution of chlamydia in minimum amount of volume (e.g. 1 mL per 25 cm2).  Remove cell growth medium and inoculate with disrupted material. For adsorption, centrifuge at 1500 x g at 25°C for 1 hour.  End adsorption by adding agent growth medium.
Incubation:  Incubate infected culture for 72 hours at 37°C in a humidified 5% CO2 atmosphere.
Preservation: Perform slow controlled rate freeze.
Effect on Host
