Mycoplasma Testing
  • OVERVIEW

Mycoplasma Testing

Mycoplasma contamination is one of the most common and serious problems when culturing eukaryotic cells. It has the potential to alter the phenotypic characteristics of the cells and can negatively impact results. Since mycoplasma is typically not visible and does not respond to antibiotics, an alternative, sensitive, and reliable detection method is required. Seattle Genova’s impurity testing services offer a portfolio of compendia assays for the detection of mycoplasma and many other impurities.

Assay Features

• High-throughput screening

• No false positives from amplicon contamination

• Highly sensitive

• Rapid results

• Reproducible

• Cost effective

• Can detect a broad range of mycoplasma species, including nonculturable strains.



Mycoplasma Bacteria Detected

• M. hyorhinis

• M. arginini

• M. fermentans

• M. orale

• M. pirum

• M. hominis

• M. salivarium

• A. laidlawii

Sample requirements

• 1mL cell culture supernatant

• 1x10^6 Frozen cells
