Chicken kidney (CK) cells have been widely utilized in virus research studies for many years . The optimized technique of primary CK cell culture production involving both mechanical and enzymatic disaggregation is described . This updated method proved to consistently give high cell yields and resultant cultures are readily used for virus assays.
