Venor®GeM Advance is a kit for direct detection of mycoplasma contaminations in cell cultures, cell culture media, and other biological matrices by conventional PCR. Designed to reduce the total assay time and the pipetting steps, the kit contains PCR strips of tubes, each pre-dispensed with all reagents necessary for each PCR reaction, including the polymerase. For additional convenience the gel loading buffer and dye are already included in the reaction buffer. After PCR, the products can be loaded directly on an agarose gel.
