The isolates underwent 3 biochemical tests (glucose fermentation, arginine deamination, and urea hydrolysis) and two biological tests (hemadsorption and hemolysis), through which 25 (22.7%) were confirmed to be M.

Previous studies have shown that inflammatory mediators can be removed from the circulation with different blood purification techniques such as plasma exchange, high-volume and very high-volume hemofiltration, and a number of hybrid therapies encompassing high-permeability hemofiltration, super high-flux hemofiltration, hemadsorption or coupled filtration, and adsorption [5].
The hemadsorption activity of MuV variants was determined in infected cell cultures at 4[degrees]C.

Extracorporeal liver support (ELS) devices can be divided into bioartificial systems, which use human or animal hepatocytes, and artificial, cell-free systems, as hemadsorption. Currently, there are three types of artificial extracorporeal liver support devices available: Single Pass Albumin Dialysis (SPAD), Molecular Adsorbent Recirculating System (MARS[R]), and the Fractionated Plasma Separation and Absorption (FPSA), called the "Prometheus System" [7].
ASFV isolates for which the hemadsorption phenomenon was inhibited by serum belonging to the same group within serogroups 1-8 were clustered into a homologous serogroup.
Cytopathic effects (CPEs) or positive hemadsorption tests were confirmed by using immunofluorescence assays performed with monoclonal antibodies against HPIV-4 (Chemicon International, Temecula, CA, USA).
If no effect was observed, the HeLa tubes were passaged blind at weekly intervals, and monkey kidney tissue cultures were tested for hemadsorption with guinea pig erythrocytes.
Nonspecific screening tests include classic culture tests for bacteria and fungi (sterility tests), special culture and animal tests for Mycobacterium spp., cell culture tests for the presence of certain cytocidal viruses (by inoculation of and blind passage in Vero, MRC-5, HeLa, RK, and A9 cells with observations for cytopathology and tests for hemadsorption and hemagglutination at the end of the culture period), and animal inoculation tests for certain viruses (suckling and adult mice, guinea pigs, and embryonated hen eggs).
In addition, a hemadsorption test was performed for LLC-MK2 and MDCK monolayers.
After 14 days of incubation, a hemadsorption test for LLC-MK2 and MDCK monolayers was performed.
