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.
