Rapid Mycoplasma Testing

By Anyone, Anywhere, Anytime

July 19, 2021 — 12 min read


bioMérieux's BIOFIRE®MYCOPLASMA, revolutionizes the way we perform mycoplasma control tests for mycoplasma. 

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.
