Global Mycoplasma Testing Market: Microbiological Culture Method Highly Sought-after

Published on : Sep 24, 2019

Albany, New York, September 24, 2019: Mycoplasmas are microbial contaminants of cell cultures capable of changing cell metabolism and phenotype. Mycoplasma testing is important as there are possibilities of mycoplasma contamination in cell-derived biological and biopharmaceutical products used in therapeutic treatment. This in turn poses safety risk in health sector and business risk for biopharmaceutical companies.

Mycoplasma infection can prevail for a long period of time before detection. Mycoplasma testing is necessary to inspect the presence of mycoplasma at the onset of infection. Testing involves culture of mycoplasmas in agar plates, indicator cells and broth. Mycoplasma testing is segmented into two methods, namely, direct and indirect method. Direct method deals with detecting presence of mycoplasma colony on agar, whereas indirect method measures gene product linked to mycoplasma.

These insights are according to the intelligence report, titled, “Global Mycoplasma Testing Market 2019-2023, Trends and Forecast Report,” which has been freshly added to Market Research Hub’s (MRH) over-arching repository.

Hundred percent elimination of mycoplasma is practically impossible, generating need of periodic examination through mycoplasma tests. These testing methods are still underdeveloped and are being worked upon. Mycoplasma testing methods can be broadly divided into microbial culture method, DNA straining by fluorochromes method and polymerase chain reaction method.

DNA staining by flurochromes requires expertise

Microbiological culture is the officially approved mycoplasma test that involves cell culture supernatant being added to liquid medium to initiate mycoplasma culture. This method is considered a gold standard in mycoplasma contamination detection as it gives positive results of contamination irrespective of the species and origin of plasma.

DNA staining by fluorochromes is a rapid and easy mycoplasma test, though the interpretation of result is difficult. The staining result can be misinterpreted if the cell culture is not in good condition. Polymerase chain reaction is efficient, fast, easy and reliable mycoplasma test. 16S rRNA molecules are detected in the most common species of cell cultures contaminated by mycoplasma.

Key players profiled in global mycoplasma testing ecosystem are Merck Kgaa, Lonza group, Thermo Fisher Scientific, American Type Culture Collection, Invivogen, Promocell, Wuxi Apptec, Norgen Biotek, SGS and Charles River Laboratories International.
