Why waste time waiting for reliable results? Viable, but non-culturable (VBNC) Mycoplasma go undetected when using the traditional method of mycoplasma culturing, risking false negative results. The Microsart® qPCR kits offer a method for early detection of mycoplasma contamination. Fast, highly specific and in line with international guidelines – both false positive and false negative results are practically ruled out. A safe and rapid solution. Because real heroes deserve only the best.

Sartorius Stedim BioOutsource offers sterility tests by Direct Inoculation and by Membrane Filtration to GMP regulations and in compliance with the European Pharmacopoeia (EP), Japanese Pharmacopoeia (JP) and the United States Pharmacopoeia (USP) standards.
Mycoplasma can be present in commercially available cell culture media and are able to penetrate 0.2 µm rated sterile filters.
That’s why Sartorius developed the Sartopore® 2 XLM filter with a 0.2 µm prefilter layer and the 0.1 µm final membrane for the successful retention of Mycoplasma. It is fully validated as a sterilizing-grade filter for the removal of Acholeplasma laidlawii with an LRV 7/cm² filter area.
