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. This product is not intended for use under EPA FIFRA, but instead under FDA FFDCA.
