The Mycoplasma Removal Agent

Plasmocin™ is an innovative product developed by InvivoGen that contains two antibiotics strongly
active against mycoplasmas.


Efficient -
Plasmocin™ is active on both free mycoplasmas and intracellular forms.
No drawback -
No resistance in liquid cultures of mycoplasmas has ever been identified in repeated experiments. No apparent adverse effect on cellular metabolism is observed in all animal cell lines tested.
Large spectrum -
Also active at low concentrations on a broad range of Gram positive and Gram negative bacteria.
Rapid -
Plasmocin™ eliminates mycoplasma in as little as 2 weeks. Plasmocin™ can also be used as routine addition to the cell culture medium to prevent mycoplasma contamination.
Plasmocin™ Treatment
To eliminate mycoplasma use Plasmocin™ (ant-mpt) at 25 μg/ml for two weeks in the infected culture.
Plasmocin™ Prophylactic

To prevent mycoplasma contamination, use Plasmocin™ (ant-mpp) at 2.5 - 5 μg/ml on a regular basis in cell culture
