In our lab recently we received three different cell lines from a college all of which were checked using the Gen-Probe kit (which I've used before, and thought it took a long time) and were found to be clean, but after rechecking them with Stratagene's PCR based detection kit them were contaminated. In our lab we've found the kit to be much quicker and simpler. Though the PCR reaction time is close to 5 hours. The kits for us are about the same cost per sample.
