Testing cell cultures for mycoplasma is essential to ensure reliable research and biotechnology products. Mycoplasma contamination does not produce turbidity but can have adverse effects on cell line growth and characteristics.
Creative Bioarray research professionals have performed thousands of mycoplasma detection tests for clients under cGMP and validated to current ICH guidelines. We have developed Bioarray TestTM assay that provides a simple, rapid and reliable method to detect all mycoplasma species known to infect cell cultures.
The combined assay includes optimal:
- Mycoplasma growth conditions
- Growth media
- Incubation conditions
- Sub-culture schedule
- Indicator cells for non-cultivable mycoplasma
Mycoplasma contamination can be efficiently and rapidly eliminated with the Mycoplasma removal agents. Two week treatment with Bioarray Cure TM was found sufficient to completely eliminate the mycoplasmas. A moderate toxicity can be observed during the course of the treatment but full recovery of the cell line is expected once mycoplasmas are eliminated.
Our methods and CRO technicians ensure fast turnaround time and the highest quality testing and elimination to produce biological therapeutics that are contamination free and safe for use in humans. Please contact our Customer Service Department to schedule a date before sending samples.
