ATCC mycoplasma DNA Certified Reference Materials
mycoplasma contamination affects roughly 15-35% of continuous cell cultures, resulting in a number of deleterious effects including the induction of chromosomal abnormalities, the disruption of DNA and RNA synthesis, decreased transfection rates, and the inhibition of both cell metabolism and growth rate. To protect the quality of your cell cultures, routine testing for mycoplasma contamination is recommended.
To facilitate the rapid and reliable detection of mycoplasma in cell culture, ATCC offers a number of products and services, including the recent release of mycoplasma DNA certified reference materials. These tools are ideal for use in:
- Inclusivity/exclusivity testing
- Establishing limits of detection
- Validating or comparing test methods
These nucleic acid preparations were isolated from common cell culture contaminants, and were quantified for genome copy number using Droplet Digital™ PCR. Moreover, as certified reference materials, each product has been prepared under an ISO Guide 34 accredited process to confirm identity, well-defined characteristics, and an established chain of custody.
