Mycoplasma Detection: Why Waste Time Waiting for Results?

Mycoplasmas are unfortunately common contaminants of cell cultures in the biopharmaceutical industry. Without causing any visible changes in the culture, they can reach high numbers, with no effect on viability, and thus may go undetected. The detection of mycoplasma DNA with conventional methods is labor-intensive, time-consuming and can take up to four weeks to produce a result. Now, real-time PCR kits offer a fast and easy-to-use  solution for early detection at all stages of your process, whether you are screening in the lab or testing in your production line.

Reduce Testing Time from Weeks to Just 3 Hours

The earlier you detect mycoplasma contamination, the higher your long-term savings. Early detection means more time to react. This saves you valuable time and considerable expense. Sartorius mycoplasma detection kits offer you:

  • Compliance with EP 2.6.7 and 2.6.21
  • A wide range of sample volumes (200 µl – 18 ml)
  • Easy interpretation of results (TaqMan probes)
