The MycoSEQ Mycoplasma gDNA Kit provides quantitative Mycoplasma genomic DNA (gDNA) for use with the MycoSEQ Mycoplasma Detection assay. The high-quality gDNA may be used during qualification and validation studies to establish limits of detection and specificity. This kit provides gDNA from the six species referenced in the European Pharmacopeia chapter on Mycoplasma EP <2.6.7>: Acholeplasma laidlawii, Mycoplasma fermentans, Mycoplasma hyorhinis, Mycoplasma orale, Mycoplasma arginine, and Mycoplasma pneumoniae.
Features of the MycoSEQ Mycooplasma gDNA Kit include:
• Accurate titer
• Identity confirmed through genotypic and phenotypic testing
• Consistent from lot to lot
• Traceable to seed culture
DNA dilution buffer is included in the kit, providing a stable diluent that ensures DNA integrity is maintained. DNA dilution buffer should be used as the diluent when preparing dilutions of the gDNA.
Rapid mycoplasma testing methods such as the MycoSEQ Mycoplasma Detection assay are viable alternatives to traditional culture-based methods. Specificity and limits of detection must be determined during validation of these methods and require the use of either live mycoplasma or gDNA from well-characterized stocks.
The MycoSEQ Mycoplasma gDNA Kit provides the accurate concentration necessary to determine an accurate limit of detection and utilizes a polyphasic (genotypic and phenotypic) approach to confirm species identification. Traceability to the seed stock provides further confidence in the characterization of the DNA.
