Cell Cultures are used every day as a part of research methods. You rely on these cultures to be healthy, yet up to 35% may be contaminated due to mycoplasma. Mycoplasma contamination affects many cell functions including metabolism, morphology, protein synthesis and cell proliferation - all of which lead to unreliable results as well as lost time and resources. Since contamination is not typically visible by turbidity, routine screening for mycoplasma contamination is essential.
