Staphylococcus aureus was used as a morphologic tag to allow light microscopic localization of herpes simplex virus type 1 (HSV-1) binding and attachment to HEp-2 target cells. The virus was bound to S. aureus through an anti-HSV-1 linkage. The complex was stable and the attached virus still infectious.
