Detect Mycoplasma in cell culture. All the components arrive in a vacuum dried Premix tube. This helps to avoid hydration and oxidation. All you need to do is add your sample. This kit allows you detect 209 species with the sensitivity of 20 CFU/ml.
Mycoplasma is a genus of bacteria which lack a cell wall. Without a cell wall, they are unaffected by penicillin or other antibiotics that target cell wall synthesis. Physically very small (< 1 micron), Mycoplasma are difficult to detect with a conventional microscope or neutralize with common antibiotics. As a result these robust bugs are often found in research laboratories as contaminants in cell culture. Reports indicate that 1/3 or more of all cell cultures are contaminated. Unfortunately, such contamination may induce cellular changes, including chromosome aberrations, changes in metabolism and cell growth. Moreover, severe Mycoplasma infections may destroy a cell line. Testing for mycoplasma is an essential quality control tool to assure accurate research and reliable biotech products.
FOR ENHANCED SENSITIVITY
Try the NEW e-Myco VALiD Kit! E-Myco VALiD PCR Detection Kits have been shown to be a highly sensitive, specific and rapid method for the detection of Mycoplasmas contamination in cell cultures. These kits can identify the five most common cell culture-infecting species of Mycoplasma all the way down to 10 CFU/ml

OVERVIEW OF THE MYCOPLASMA KIT
Does what it says ! Review by Barny

very easy to use Review by Sam from Nottingham university
I've used this kit for a few months and the immediate feeling is the simplicity. The kit can be pricey however I do keep an eye out for special offers which come through once in a while and place an order for a bunch of them at the same time. I am happy to recommend this product.

Highly Reccommended Review by Elena from Institute of Cancer Reseach
Ive been using the e-myco kits for quite some time and have found them to be very reliable. The key thing for me is the ease of use ! (Posted on 09/10/2016)
Introductory Offer Review by Jimmy
Chembio were very kind to offer me this kit on an introductory offer and I haven't been disappointed. Its simplified all our processes and we can now detect over 200 species. I will using this product again ! (Posted on 11/08/2016)
