 We would like to receive comments concerning the importance of using only 
mycoplasma free cell cultures for the purpose of routine diagnostic virology.
 More specifically: (1) How common is the practise, especially in major 
laboratories, to monitor fresh cell cultures for the presence of mycoplasma and by 
which method.
                    (2) What measures can be taken to eliminate mycoplasma from 
clinical specimens eg. saliva or gargle fluid prior to inoculation of tissue 
 Please reply to Etheron at medmicro.uct.ac.za
