Mycoplasma detection

Mycoplasma contaminants may be introduced into cell culture and other biological products through master seeds, master cell seed (stock), starting materials of animal origin, and in processing of biological materials during passage and product assembly. It is therefore necessary to demonstrate through testing that Mycoplasma is not present in the final product, working seeds and cells and harvests, and starting materials such as master seed, master cell seed, and ingredients of animal origin.

The test is done in compliance with Europe pharmacopeia test 2.6.7.
