Focusing on Cell Culture and Mycoplasma Control.
Mycoplasma species remain a constant threat in cell culture. The parasitic bacteria lacking a cell wall are a serious risk, both in terms of research results and with respect to biopharmaceuticals such as vaccines or cell therapy. The good news is, with simple rules of behavior and precautions the teases can be banished from the laboratory. The key to a mycoplasma-free cell culture lies in applied good laboratory practice, comprehensive prevention, and frequent controls.
