Mycoplasma Detection Prevention Treatment

Biowest provides disinfectant solutions for incubators, water baths and surfaces in daily use in cell culture and molecular biology laboratories.

Mycokit is designed to detect the presence of mycoplasma contaminating biological materials, such as cultured cells.Mycoplasma detection by the direct culture procedure is time-consuming and some mycoplasma species are difficult to cultivate. With PCR testing, results are obtained within a few hours, since the presence of contaminant mycoplasma can be easily detected simply by verifying the bands of amplified DNA fragments in electrophoresis. There is no need to prepare probes labeled with radioisotopes, or to calculate enzyme, dNTP's or buffer concentrations.
