Doria,
If you have a pure virus prep, maybe you could titrate it (to get PFU/mL value), and then extract viral DNA and estimate the number of viral particles based on the amount of viral DNA present, knowing that parvoviruses have a single-stranded DNA genome about 5.2 kbp in size? Just a thought...

We are wondering what the particle:PFU ratio is for porcine parvovirus.



Any ideas how to acquire this statistic?
