Cell culture contamination control

Cell culture contamination control

High quality but affordable diagnostic kits for the detection of microbial contaminants in cell cultures, biopharmaceutical products, clinical samples and water. Utilising the sensitivity of PCR and real-time PCR techniques and continued development activities guarantees top quality contamination control.

The demand for diagnostic kits for the detection of microbial contaminants in cell cultures, biopharmaceutical products, clinical samples and water is increasing.    The contamination of cell cultures by Mycoplasma causes non-reproducible results in research and productivity losses of up to 50% in industry.  Therefore both detection and elimination of Mycoplasma contamination is essential as keeping lab surfaces clean.

Detection of Legionella from water systems has both an important research and clinical significance.  Other diagnostic kits outlined in this section include novel PCR based kits for detection of Eubacteria, Methicillin-resistant Staphylococcus aureus (MRSA) and Treponema pallidium.
