Mynox® Gold is a further development of the classic Mynox®. Mynox® Gold is a combination of a standard antibiotic ciprofloxacin with the biological Mynox® reagent surfactin. One application includes an initial treatment that eliminates most mycoplasmas without affecting the cells. The follow-up treatments destroy the remaining mycoplasmas. The mode of action of Mynox® Gold is based on a biophysical mechanism to integrate into the membrane of mycoplasmas and thereby impair their integrity.
