Hi Folks,

Does anyone have any experience with the Duck embryo cell line (ATCC CCL-141)?

Are these  fairly robust in their growth characteristics? 
(I know that they go to about 40 passages and split  at 1/2).

Additionally, do fowlpox and canarypox virus grow to high titre in these cells?

Any info will be greatly appreciated.
