Mycoplasma contamination can quickly develop in a lab, creating havoc. To make matters worse, it can take months to get rid of it.
Culture contamination needs to be taken seriously, as it can impact the viability of your research work. It can create chromosomal aberrations, inhibit cell proliferation and metabolism, cause changes in gene expression profiles and even lead to cell death.
Traditional detection methods can be time consuming. Mycoplasma cannot be detected by standard microscopic methods. Consequently, alternative solutions are available.
Stem Genomics has designed Myco-digital, its own digital PCR-based mycoplasma detection assay, to meet your needs. It has been precisely designed to target the conserved 16S ribosomal RNA coding region of the mycoplasma genome.
We deliver the results back to you within a maximum of 3 days. This quick turnaround enables the routine screening required for your peace of mind.
