Solutions for Mycoplasma Contamination

Reliable mycoplasma detection, elimination and prevention

Mycoplasma contamination can seriously impact the reliability, reproducibility, and consistency of experimental results, representing a major problem for basic research as well as for the manufacturing of bioproducts.

A conservative estimate states that between 15–35% of all continuous cell cultures are contaminated with mycoplasma. Since contaminations are very difficult to detect or prevent, the presence of mycoplasma can remain undiscovered for months.

Make sure your can rely on your experimental results. We provide powerful products for reliable detection and successful elimination and prevention of mycoplasma contamination.
