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.
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.
- Cat. No. 10-0200 2 applications
- Cat. No. 10-0500 5 applications
- Cat. No. 10-1000 10 applications
Successful elimination of mycoplasma should be verified with a suitable mycoplasma detection system, e.g. Minerva Biolabs’s Venor®GeM Mycoplasma PCR Detection Kits.

Fig. Electron micrograph showing the effects of Mynox® when applied to contaminated cell cultures. (A) Mycoplasma contaminated cell culture before treatment. (B) With one application of Mynox® membranes of all mycoplasma are destroyed while the tissue cell membrane is unaffected. Black arrows indicate mycoplasmas, white arrows indicate parts of a tissue cell.
