What are Mycoplasmas?

Mycoplasmas are very small bacteria lacking cell walls that belong to various genera within the class Mollicutes.  They are considered to be the smallest-free living organisms and most commonly discovered in research laboratory settings where cell culture is present.

Peak Serum’s filtration scheme utilizes triple 0.1 micron membrane sterile filters that effectively remove mycoplasma from our serum.  Every lot endures stringent testing for mycoplasmas after final filtration and prior to final release to ensure your research is protected.  Our serum is tested for mycoplasmas by 9CFR 113.28 for 28 days.
