BIOFIRE® Mycoplasma


BIOFIRE® Mycoplasma is a fully automated system that provides simple, accurate,  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

There's a better way to do mycoplasma testing — you no longer have to send out your testing, wait 28 days for the compendial method, or rely on a molecular biologist with specialized training. BIOFIRE® Mycoplasma allows  nearly anyone to test for mycoplasma anywhere in the facility at any time, with results in under an hour!

BIOFIRE® Mycoplasma and Man


BIOFIRE® Mycoplasma is a revolutionary approach to mycoplasma testing that brings value to biopharmaceutical manufacturing.

The current rapid methods available are complicated, requiring highly trained personnel and lengthy turnaround times. The BIOFIRE® Mycoplasma solution provides results in less than an hour, is fully automated, and requires only 2 minutes of hands-on-time.

Thanks to its ease-of-use and small footprint, BIOFIRE® Mycoplasma enables at-line testing near sample collection sites, by personnel non-specialized in mycoplasma detection or molecular techniques.

Safeguard your bioproduction procedures, minimize the impact of costs associated with a possible contamination in the factory, and gain valuable time in releasing batches with BIOFIRE® Mycoplasma.
