Mycoplasma Detection & Elimination

Mycoplasma, the smallest living organisms currently known are a unique genus of bacteria that lack cell walls and are a frequent cause of cell culture contamination in laboratories around the world. The small size and ubiquitous distribution of Mycoplasma account for their ability to go undetected in seemingly sterile cell cultures. Cell cultures can become contaminated with Mycoplasma by introducing contaminated cells with Mycoplasma-free cells and/or using contaminated reagents. Mycoplasma contamination presents serious issues to researchers as it can cause alterations of various cell characteristics which may lead to inaccurate experiment conclusions.

The following products are suitable for detecting and eliminating Mycoplasma contamination.
