Microbial contamination is a common problem for many cell and molecular biology laboratories. The presence of microorganisms in cell cultures has a tremendous impact on the success, scientific significance, safety, and costs of work in research and industry. Indiscriminate use of antibiotics on already contaminated cell cultures or to compensate for questionable experiments and/or suboptimal cell culture facilities, does not represent a solution to the problem. Quite the contrary: due to development of antibiotics resistance, irresponsible use of these culture supplements in fact increases the contamination risk.
Minerva Biolabs offers you solutions for reliable cell culture contamination prevention against microbial growth in incubators, water baths, cell cultures and culture media.
