General description

The kit is comprised of a combination of biological agents that reliably and completely eliminate mycoplasma contamination. The initial treatment of this eradication procedure is adequate for mycoplasma elimination in most applications. The second step suppresses and inactivates any remaining mycoplasma using a follow-up antibiotic treatment.

Application

The LookOut® Mycoplasma Elimination Kit has been developed to quickly and efficiently eliminate mycoplasma contamination from cell cultures.

Features and Benefits

  • Minimal cytotoxic properties of the reagents
  • Highly effective
  • Retention of normal cell characteristics

Suitability

The LookOut® Mycoplasma Elimination Kit is suitable for the elimination of Mollicutes and related organisms (Mycoplasma, Acholeplasma, Spiroplasma, and Entomoplasma) in cell and virus cultures. It is not effective for treating mycoplasma contamination in Chlamydia cultures.
