TOOLS Mycoplasma Detection Kit
TOOLS Mycoplasma Detection Kit allows for quick and reliable screening of cell cultures for mycoplasma contamination. Highly undesirable, easily acquired and notorious for an elusive onset of infection, mycoplasmas tend to alter the infected cells at a molecular level, ultimately leading to visible changes in cell morphology and growth characteristics. Timely detection of mycoplasmas in cell cultures is desirable in order to deter wide-spread contamination and save on the costly efforts of elimination. Designed to perform with high specificity and sensitivity, this Kit helps minimize false positives while ensuring coverage over 200 species/strains of mycoplasmas with a quick protocol for routine screening.
