Many microbes can contaminate mammalian cell cultures, but some of the most worrisome are mycoplasmas, members of a family of tiny bacteria that threaten cell viability and alter cell behavior. Now something good has come out of a set of accidentally infected cultures: Researchers have developed an analytical method that uses a glowing enzyme to quickly assess whether mycoplasmas have invaded (Anal.
