I know several way to inactivate viruses. But probably those giving best
results to protect the antigenicity would be : ß-propiolactone and UV
radiation. I have to mention that Aujesky virus is not inactivate by
ß-propioloactone but well by UV. It seems that there is no fixed recipe.
So do some trials.
I guess that (for human, field at least) control sera must be proven free
of pathogens. I have to check in my guidelines to know what about it.
As I am also working (part-time) for a diagnostic company in the vet

peroxidase conjugate in a liquid form in order to keep them either
concentrated or ready-to-use in the kits.
