Mycoplasma Testing

Mycoplasma (Mollicutes) are one of the most common contaminants of cell lines and can affect cell growth in culture and reduce yields of biomolecules.

Cells used to manufacture of biological products must be shown to be free of adventitious agents including mycoplasma.

Mycoplasma Testing with Texcell include

  • Detection of culturable and non-culturable mycoplasma
  • Detection of mycoplasma by qPCR (>90 species)

Texcell has developed several protocols to detect a broad range of mycoplasma species encountered in cell lines of human and animal origins. Our standard tests are validated and meet global regulatory requirements (ICH Q5D, 1993 PCT, EP 2.6.7)
