Mynox® is a mycoplasma removal agent for treatment of contaminated cell cultures. Mycoplasma elimination is achieved in only 6 - 8 days (plus 4 passages for DNA washout). Mynox® is an antibiotic-free formulation for mycoplasma eradication from cell cultures. Its activity is based on a biophysical mechanism, which therefore does not enable the development of resistant strains.

Recommended Use

Mynox® is intended for research use only. Not applicable for clinical treatment. Protocols for the direct treatment of viruses are described in the product manual.


Mynox® is a sterile, ready-to-use solution, aliquoted per tube for single use, 200 µl per vial.

1 application can be used to permanently eliminate mycoplasma from one cell culture.
