BIOFIRE® Mycoplasma

RAPID TESTING BY ANYONE, ANYWHERE, ANYTIME

BIOFIRE® Mycoplasma provides simple, accurate, and rapid in-house mycoplasma detection for use in testing raw materials, in-process samples, and final product release. We offer validation services designed to meet regulatory requirements—from documentation to comprehensive on-site support.

Product Details

You no longer have to send out your mycoplasma testing, wait 28 days for the compendial method, or require a molecular biologist with specialized training and a dedicated lab for a rapid result. BIOFIRE® allows you to be assured that your manufacturing process is on track by allowing nearly anyone to test for mycoplasma anywhere in the facility at any time.

Features

  • Two minutes of hands-on time
  • Fully automated
  • Go from sample to result in less than 60 minutes
  • Test raw materials, in process samples and final products
  • Detects more than 120 strains of Mycoplasma and Mollicutes
  • 21 CFR part 11 compliant

bioMérieux's BIOFIRE® MYCOPLASMA is a revolutionary approach to mycoplasma testing that brings value to biopharmaceutical manufacturing.

All current rapid methods available are complicated, require a specific molecular laboratory organization, highly trained personnel and can be time consuming. The BIOFIRE® Mycoplasma solution provides results in less than 1h, is fully automated and requires only 2 minutes of hands-on-time.

Thanks to its ease-of-use and small footprint, BIOFIRE® Mycoplasma enables testing outside of the expert lab, near sample collection sites, by personnel non-specialized in mycoplasma detection.

It’s an innovation that brings massive added­-value in safeguarding bioproduction procedures, minimizing the impact of the cost of a possible contamination in the factory, and gaining valuable time in releasing batches.
