Mycoplasmas are the smallest free-living organisms and considered to be the simplest of bacteria. Mycoplasma contamination of cell cultures has been a nightmare to cell culturists. It can drastically alter your cells and consequently, skew your research results.
We provide mycoplasma test by PCR and electrophoresis. The primer set allows sensitive and specific detection of several different species of Mycoplasma, (M. fermentans, M. hyorhinis, M. arginini, M. orale, M. salivarium, M. hominis, M. pulmonis, M. arthritidis, M. neurolyticum, M. hyopneumoniae, M. capricolum ) and one
species of Ureaplasma (U. urealyticum ).
