The MycoZap™ Reagent can eliminate detectable mycoplasma contamination in as few as 4 days and has been optimized to clear mycoplasma with minimal toxic effects on the infected cells. It eliminates mycoplasma by using a combination of antibiotic and antimetabolic agents. This approach allows for a highly reliable elimination of mycoplasma that cannot be achieved by the use of antibiotics alone. The MycoZap™ Reagent can be used to eradicate mollicutes, including Mycoplasma, Acholeplasma, Spiroplasma and Entomoplasma species in cell cultures.Benefits
Efficient mycoplasma removal with minimal effect on cell viability. The MycoZap™ Reagent treatment eliminates mycoplasma in as few as 4 days (detected by MycoAlert™ Assay) with minimal impact on cell viability (determined by ViaLight™ Assay).
Cultures should be tested with the MycoAlert™ Mycoplasma Detection Kit at regular intervals after mycoplasma elimination to ensure fresh infections do not arise.
