Transmission Electron Microscopy (TEM) is commonly used to detect viruses in biological samples and in cell lines. TEM can also be used to characterize cell lines and to detect other contaminants such as mycoplasma, bacteria, fungi and other viruses.
Texcell offers innovative protocols:
- detection of adventitious agents in cells
- analysis of supernatant by negative stain
- analysis of supernatant after co-cultivation with detector cells
TEM is also an indispensable tool to assess the good health of a cell line.
