Mycoplasma detection tests

Mycoplasmas are common contaminants of cell cultures in the biopharmaceutical industry. Without causing any visible changes in the culture, they can reach high numbers, with no effect on viability and may thus go undetected. The detection of mycoplasma DNA with conventional methods is labor-intensive, time-consuming and can take up to four weeks to produce a result. Now, real-time PCR kits offer a fast and easy-to-use solution for early detection at all stages of your process, whether you are screening in the lab or testing in your production line.
