Mycoplasma contamination is one of the most common and major problems in cell culture for research laboratories and industries. A conservative estimate states that around 15-35% of all continuous cell cultures are contaminated with mycoplasma. Mycoplasma is one type of the smallest and simplest self-replicating prokaryotes, which can’t be detected by visual inspection and gradually effect cell growth and alter DNA, RNA, and protein synthesis of host cells. Mycoplasma Prevention Solution is designed to prevent mycoplasma contamination in cultured cells when it has been added into culture medium. The activity of solution is stable in culture medium and not affected by penicillin, streptomycin, and serum. This solution exhibits no toxicity to cultured cells.
The solution is sterilized and filtered with 0.2 µm filter.
Prevent mycoplasma contamination in cultured cells.
