Mycoplasma, first discovered in 1898, was firstly classified as virus. There are more than 100 known species belonging to the genus Mycoplasma. They are the smallest free-living, self-replicating organisms and lack a cell wall so that antibiotics such as penicillin, which interfere with murein formation, are not effective. If not treated, Mycoplasma contaminations can lead to diminished cell growth and to the loss of cultures. MycoRemove is a highly efficient antibiotic active at low concentration for a broad range of Mycoplasma subspecies. It acts by interference with the DNA replication machinery and thereby inhibiting Mycoplasma growth. MycoRemove is provided as a 50x concentrate.
