DiaPlexQ™ Mycoplasma Detection Kit

The DiaPlexQ™ Mycoplasma Detection Kit is designed to detect 65 types of the Mycoplasma species (54 Mycoplasma sp., 3 Acholeplasma, 6 Spiroplasma sp., 2 Ureaplasma., etc) in cell culture contaminants using the Multiplex PCR technology which can detect multiple specific target genes in a single PCR.


Pathogen Information
Mycoplasma infections have been relatively common in cell culture: (5-35% of all cell cultures are infected and much higher in some countries that do not practice systematic detection and elimination). Biomedical product Mycoplasma infections which are typically difficult to detect during routine cell culture work can cause physiological and morphological distortions that affect experimental results. Furthermore, a Mycoplasma infection in one cell culture has the potential to spread to yet uninfected laboratory cell cultures.
