Service description

  Contamination of biological samples such as tumor cells, hybridomas and viruses used on research animals can cause disease outbreaks or affect the integrity and outcome of results. Applied Biological Materials Inc. uses the advanced testing method Infectious Microbe PCR AmplifiCation Test (IMPACT) to detect a wide range of known contaminants, which is superior to the traditional Mouse Antibody Production (MAP) test in the following ways:

  • Turnaround time is reduced from 4-6 weeks to 5 days
  • PCR test results does not rely on the immune response of the mouse
  • PCR testing does not require the use of live animals
  • PCR testing is more sensitive and can detect smaller amounts of infectants

  Our preselected contaminant detection service options, which includes the most common viruses and mycoplasma species that might afflict mice, gives reliable and quick results, and are discounted by 50% over our customizable service options.

  To order, check the corresponding box(es) on the right, and then click "Add to Cart". To aid your selection of the service(s) you want, please read the virus information provided by clicking on the specific contaminant. Also, upon confirmation of order, discounts of 5% are available on orders of 5 or more samples and 10% for orders of 10 or more samples.
