Mycoplasma is a form of bacteria that lacks a nucleus and a cell wall, and are thus unaffected by many antibiotics. Nanoparticles submitted to the NCL may be subjected to testing for mycoplasma when deemed necessary. The types of nanoparticle formulations generally tested for mycoplasma contamination include those that incorporate a component derived from an animal or hybridoma cultures.

Effect of blood collection tube type and time to assay on the enumeration of circulating tumor cells using the High Definition Single Cell Analysis (HD-SCA) method, laboratory of Peter Kuhn Ph.D.
The goal of this study is to characterize the effect of two pre-analytical variables on the enumeration of circulating tumor cells using the High Definition Single Cell Analysis assay. The optimized assay was then compared to the CellSearch® System.
