Mycoplasma Contamination

Mycoplasma Detection and Treatment

In cell culturing mycoplasma contamination is a major problem regarding both research and industrial production. Unlike fungal or bacterial infections, mycoplasmal contaminations cannot be detected by visual inspection, but can lead to unreliable experimental results and potential unsafe biological products.
