Mycoplasma Experience offers a testing service for veterinary samples, to establish whether mycoplasmas and/or ureaplasmas are present.

Mycoplasma Experience will examine veterinary specimens culturally for mycoplasmas and, where appropriate, ureaplasmas. Media used are tested for their ability to support low passage strains of organisms sought. Isolates can be screened for antimicrobial susceptibility if required. Many pathogens can be presumptively identified by phenotypic characteristics or by coloured colonies on our diagnostic agars. For further identification services see our guide to Mycoplasma Identification.
