Microarray test kits detect mycoplasma contamination in cell cultures and other biological materials. Kits feature 40 species-specific probes and one universal probe test to identify virtually all reported contaminations using PCR detection. Each DNA probe is spotted five times to ensure assay robustness.
On-chip control systems with Cy3- and Cy5-labeling allow for exact quality determination. Comprehensive assays are completed in under five hours from sample collection to evaluation. Highly specific and sensitive probes eliminate virtually all false-postive and false-negative test results. Validated in accordance with European Pharmocopoeia (Ph. Eur. 2.6.21) guidelines. Detection limit of <10 CFU/mL complies with biologics production requirements.
