e-Myco™ Mycoplasma PCR Detection Kit (ver.2.0)
Dried & aliquoted PreMix Kit to detect 49 kinds of mycoplasma
e-Myco™ Mycoplasma PCR Detection Kit(version 2.0) Mycoplasma are common and serious contaminants of cell cultures. It has been shown that 30% to 87% of cell cultures are infected with mycoplasma. Many mycoplasma contaminations, particularly in continuous cell lines, grow slowly and do not destroy host cells but are still able to affect various parameters, leading to unreliable or false results. These effects include changes in metabolism, growth, viability, DNA, RNA, and protein synthesis, and morphology. Testing for mycoplasma is an essential quality control tool to assure accurate research and reliable biotechnological products. The e-Myco™ (ver.2.0) product is a set of primers designed to detect the presence of mycoplasma that might contaminate biological materials such as cultured cells. Conventional techniques that are used to detect mycoplasma involve culturing samples on selective media, which needs at least 1 week to obtain results, whereas by performing PCR with this primer set, which is based on conserved 16S rRNA, detection results are obtained in a few hours.
The adopted 8-methoxypsoralen (8-MOP) is used to extinguish the template activity of contaminated DNAs. 8-MOP is known to intercalate into double-stranded nucleic acids and form a covalent interstrand crosslink after photo-activation by incident light at wavelength 320-400 nm. An internal control of this product was constructed to identify false negative results in each reaction. The internal control was designed in such a way that the sample primer pair was used to amplify the internal control and target DNA, which were differentiated by size

e-Myco™ Mycoplasma PCR Detection Kit(version 2.0) 의 Detection limit test
This is the result of checking the detection limit for each sample using e-MycoTM Mycoplasma PCR Detection Kit (ver.2.0). We checked that the sensitivity was 3.25 pg/ml for template DNA, 12 cells/ml for cell number, and 20 cfu for mycoplasma copy number.
