Posted by rohan on September 22nd, 2017

The Global mycoplasma testing market was worth USD 465.1 Million in 2016 and is estimated to be growing at a CAGR of 12.7%, to reach USD 845.7 Million by 2021. Mycoplasma is a type of bacteria and they do not possess a cell wall or cell membrane. Since most of the common antibiotics are designed to target cell wall synthesis; they do not work against Mycoplasma. They are one of the smallest bacteria and cannot be observed using a normal microscope.

Mycoplasmas are more frequently found as contaminants in cell culture research laboratories. The contamination can either be carried inside by an individual or from the materials brought from outside the laboratory. In order to prevent further contamination, mycoplasma testing is recommended for all cell culturists. There are many mycoplasma tests available in the market. Mycoplasma infections cannot be allowed to grow in cell culture as they tend to bring changes in chromosomes and affect the cell growth.
