PCR is a nice technique if you want to identify exactly wich type of 
mycoplasma is contaminating your cultures. If you are merely interested 
in testing your cultures for mycoplasma, I reccomend looking at 
Freshney's book on cell culture. There are much easier, and more direct 
methods. A simple nuclear stain will tell you if there are contaminating 
species in your culture.
