BioVision’s Mycoplasma PCR Detection Kit is used for quick and reliable screening of cell cultures for mycoplasma contamination. Mycoplasma infections are easily acquired, highly undesirable and notorious for an elusive onset of infection. Mycoplasmas tend to alter the infected cells at a molecular level, leading to changes in cell morphology, proliferation, metabolism, gene synthesis and processing and adhesion properties. Timely detection of mycoplasmas in cell cultures is needed to reduce wide-spread contamination and save on the costly efforts of elimination. In this kit, mycoplasma DNA in the cell culture supernatant is amplified via PCR and visualized using gel electrophoresis. BioVision’s Mycoplasma PCR Detection Kit helps to minimize false positives while ensuring coverage of over 200 species/strains of mycoplasmas with a quick protocol for routine screening. In addition to the short detection process (less than 2 hours), the easy handling and high sensitivity makes this kit a convenient tool for routine examination of cell cultures and media.
