Cambridge Molecular Diagnostics SwiftDx Mycoplasma Detection Kit

UK-based Cambridge Molecular Diagnostics has launched the SwiftDx Mycoplasma Detection Kit, a lateral flow test for the detection of Mycoplasma contamination. The test uses an adapted PCR method  called eAMP, and can provide accurate results in minutes, suiting it for use in academic laboratories and for manufacturing in the biotech and pharmaceutical industries. The assay uses a small sample taken directly from cell culture media supernatant, and has a detection limit of less than 10 cfu/mL after day three of culture, the company said.
