Mycoplasma TaqMan PCR Detection Kits

Mycoplasma is a common and serious contaminant of cell cultures. Mycoplasma is often not visible and does not respond to antibiotics, and therefore it is a major issue that requires monitoring and early detection. Up to 30% of cell cultures may be contaminated with Mycoplasmas, the main contaminants being the species M. orale, M. laidlawii, M. arginini and M. hyorhinis. These organisms produce a variety of effects on the infected cells in culture, including changes in metabolism growth, viability and morphology, thereby altering the phenotypic characteristics of the host cells. Therefore there is an absolute requirement for routine, periodic assays to diagnose possible Mycoplasma contamination of all cell cultures, particularly continuous or established cell lines.

Kit Specifications

You have selected: Cat. TM33150

Storage Conditions and Product Stability
All kit components can be stored for 2 years after the date of production without showing any reduction in performance.

All kit components should be stored at -20°C upon arrival. Repeated thawing and freezing (> 2 x) of the Master Mix and Positive Control should be avoided, as this may affect the performance of the assay. If the reagents are to be used only intermittently, they should be frozen in aliquots.
