De-Plasma™ reagent has lower cell toxicity and higher efficacy than competing products.
Approximately 15-35% of cell cultures in laboratories around the world are contaminated by Mycoplasma, a unique but problematic genus of bacteria. Cells can become contaminated with Mycoplasma by introducing contaminated cells with Mycoplasma-free cells and/or using contaminated reagents. Mycoplasma contamination presents serious issues to researchers as it can cause alterations of various cell characteristics which may lead to inaccurate experiment conclusions.
To help scientists fight and control Mycoplasma contamination, TOKU-E (of which Reliable Diagnostic Supplies Pty Ltd is the official South African distributor for) has developed De-Plasma™, a potent and safe cell culture treatment that consists of a proprietary mixture of three antimicrobial compounds with anti-Mycoplasma properties. De-Plasma™ is a versatile anti-Mycoplasma treatment which can be used to eliminate existing Mycoplasma contamination or can be used prophylactically to prevent contamination.

Oh, talking about antimicrobials...you do know that antibiotic solubility data is not always provided by antibiotic and chemical suppliers, right? Researching for alternative resources can be very time consuming and unproductive. In order to save you time, we have for you a comprehensive list of frequently used antimicrobial, plant biology, and anticancer compounds along with detailed solubility data for each compound.
