Testing Method

We offer a PCR-based mycoplasma test that includes a negative control and a positive control in each test. This is a very sensitive method for detecting mycoplasma contamination.

Importance of Testing for Mycoplasma
  Mycoplasma contamination of cell cultures can cause serious problems in your lab.  Mycoplasma can:

  • Affect cell growth and morphology.
  • Inhibit cell metabolism.
  • Disrupt DNA and RNA synthesis.
  • Produce chromosomal aberrations.

Sample Requirements:  Antibiotic-free, 3-day culture supernatant or cryopreserved cells.

Results from "Standard" mycoplasma testing in 1-2 weeks.  If you need results sooner, order our Mycoplasma Rush testing service.
