Mycoplasma Quality Control

Protect your continuous cell lines

Mycoplasma contamination constitutes a serious concern for cell culturists as they are a common cause of cell line contamination and frequently go unnoticed due to the lack of obvious symptoms. These silent contaminants can affect almost all aspects of cell physiology, which can damage the quality of your research materials and compromise the credibility of your data. Your research is too important to risk—get your cells tested today.

At ATCC we are committed to keeping your cell lines safe, which is why we provide the tools and services needed to test your cells. Browse our resources below to get started.
