Many thanks to Sam Lee and also to Lou Hom who emailed me with the
information. The name of the titer kit is:
BacPAK Baculovirus Rapid Titer Kit (cat # K1599-1). The kit costs 605 SFr
or about $400 for 5 assays (!!!)
ETH-Honggerberg (Swiss Federal Institute of Technology)
CH-8093 Zurich, Switzerland
