Mycoplasma Retention-Sterile Filtration
Mycoplasma contamination in cell cultures can be difficult to detect. Most often, the only real solution is to discard all suspect cultures and reagents. Devices with 0.1 µm Supor membrane can be used for added assurance to filter liquids where the potential for mycoplasma contamination exists. This membrane is routinely tested for retention of mycoplasma (A. laidlawii). Pall's 0.1 µm Supor membrane devices are available in:
