Regulatory Testing of Vaccines and Cell-Culture Derived Therapeutics

The focus of Mycoplasma Experience testing is sensitive cultural testing for the detection of viable mycoplasmas - and ureaplasmas where required.

Cell Culture Testing

Two cultural tests are offered, a cell-culture test and a cell-screen test.

Veterinary Diagnostic Testing

Veterinary samples can be tested for the presence of mycoplasmas and/or ureaplasmas as well as isolation and identification of pathogens where required. We hold a current SAPO licence allowing us to handle specified animal pathogens.

Serum Testing

Serum presents a possible source of mycoplasma contamination when used as a cell-culture medium supplement. We offer a rapid filtration test to establish the presence or absence of mycoplasmas.

Rapid Microbiological Mycoplasma Testing

Two PCR protocols to detect mycoplasmas are offered, aimed at cell culture and cell therapy products. These can be stand-alone tests or alongside culture testing.

Mycoplasma Identification

We are able to use a variety of methods to identify mycoplasma from different sources.

Sample collection and transportation

This service is available for any samples that require testing at our facility.
