Consequences of Mycoplasma Contamination

The presence of Mycoplasma in any cell culture can produce devastating, unexpected results and has been seen to  inhibit cell proliferation and induce apoptosis in some cell lines (Nikfarjam et. al). Undetected Mycoplasma contamination can lead to loss of time, money, and effort.

OriGene’s MycoTrack Mycoplasma Detection Kit

OriGene provides a highly sensitive Mycoplasma Detection kit (MycoTrack), Cat. No. NP100050, which uses the simple principle of PCR. 95% of Mycoplasma contamination comes from A. laidlawii, M. arginine, M. fermentans, M. hyorhinis, M. hominis and M. orale. MycoTrack™ can detect these common contaminants, as well as M. pneumoniaeM. salivariumM. synoviae, and Ureaplasma species.

Mycoplasma contamination remains a prominent issue in biopharmaceutical manufacturing and research labs globally. Early detection can prevent loss of valuable products, and most importantly, inaccurate or erroneous experimental results.
