Mycoplasma Testing

The Facility can perform a PCR assay to test for the presence of over 60 species of mycoplasma in cell culture. 

Investigator should provide the facility with cells in a 1.5 ml tube: 

  • Suspension cells: count 104 - 105 cells and resuspend in 1 ml PBS or media 
  • Adherent cells: scrape cells from one well of a 6-well plate and resuspend in 1 ml of PBS or media
    •  Do not dissociate cells with trypsin or EDTA; these agents disrupt mycoplasma. 

Cell suspension should be frozen and stored at -80. 

Price is $150, plus $10 for each additional sample (up to 10 samples per run).
