Additional Antibiotics.
Antibiotics are secondary metabolites secreted by certain strains of fungi and bacteria. In cell culture most of them are used to keep biological contamination at bay. Common biological contaminations encountered are due to bacteria, fungi and mycoplasma. Less frequent contaminations are due to virus, chemicals and cross contamination with other types of cells. While judicious use of antibiotics to control contamination is advised, they should not be viewed as replacements to good aseptic practices during cell culture. Our high quality selection antibiotics ensure strict vetting of suitable cells and ensure establishment of mutant cell lines with uniform population of cells.

We offer a wide variety of antibiotics and antibiotic solutions for all your research needs.
