CONTRACT R & D
All aspects of work relating to mycoplasmas can be undertaken, our commercial background lending appreciation of clients constraints and necessary scheduling.
This page lists possible projects but please ask about your specific requirements so that you can assess our capabilities.
Testing can range from individual isolates to large-
These could be required for the assessment of vaccine or antibiotic treatments or where antibiotic susceptibility of isolates required determination.
Our laboratories can assist in the isolation of mycoplasmas of clinical and veterinary significance in laboratories which lack access to suitable media and expertise.
High quality isolation work can be achieved in any country either by using courier services to return samples to our laboratories or by the supply of media.
VALIDATION OF DOWNSTREAM PROCESSING PROCEDURES FOR MYCOPLASMA REMOVAL
I.e. Spiking studies
The widespread use of filters -
Contract work usually requires validation of viable unit capture on membranes prior to large volume filter testing.
Other possibilities of our filtration work include:
Note: This is a non destructive test -
These could involve the development of isolation kits for specific organisms or selective/diagnostic medium development. Application of antibodies to mycoplasma detection and identification or antigens for antibody detection.
Production media can be designed and yields assessed up to pilot scale prior to hand-
Support can continue through production with, additionally, design of vaccine test protocols and contact with Regulatory Authorities.
