Detection of anaerobic mycoplasmas in cell cultures


A commercially available anaerobic generator and incubation system that develops a low oxidation-reduction potential was used for the assay of cell cultures for mycoplasmal contamination. Mycoplasma broth and agar media supplemented with dextrose, yeast extract, and horse serum were used. This system supported growth of some mycoplasmas that failed to grow… (More)
