Mycoplasma Elimination Kit

Contamination of cell cultures with bacteria, fungi, and yeasts represents a major problem in cell culture. Although these microorganisms can be easily detected during routine cell culture applications via changes in
the turbidity of the culture and visualization under the inverted microscope, a class of bacteria regularly escapes detection. These bacteria belonging to the class of Mollicutes, are commonly known as mycoplasma. Mycoplasma may survive undetected in cell cultures for a long time without any visible effect on the culture.

NutriCulture Mycoplasma Elimination Kit is used for removal of mycoplasma from infected cell cultures with no cytotoxic side effects observed. NutriCulture Mycoplasma Elimination Kit can effectively eliminate
mycoplasma strains, that are responsible for more than 85% of the contaminations in animal cell cultures (Acholesplasma laidlawii, Mycoplasma arginini, Mycoplasma hyorhinis, and Mycoplasma orale), from experimentally contaminated and chronically infected cell lines.


NutriCulture Mycoplasma Elimination Kit is comprised of two antibiotics, MEK1 and MEK2, which targets protein synthesis.
