Mycoplasma can act as severe contaminant in cell culture. Mycoplasmal cell culture contamination occurs due to contamination from individuals or contaminated cell culture medium ingredients. Mycoplasma may induce cellular changes, including chromosome aberrations, changes in metabolism and cell growth. Severe mycoplasma infections may destroy a cell line.
The MycoTOOl PCR Mycoplasma Detection Kit is an in vitro nucleic acid amplification test optimized for the detection of mycoplasma in CHO cell culture according to the Guideline for Mycoplasma NAT described in chapter 2.6.7 of the European Pharmacopeia with respect to specificity, sensitivity/detection limit and robustness.
