Reagents, Microbiology, Bacteria, Culture Media, Selective, Mycoplasma
Definition : Selective culture media in the form of liquids, solids, or semisolids used as a medium capable of supporting the growth of mycoplasma, while inhibiting the growth of other microorganisms. These selective culture media combine a rich nutritive base usually containing peptones, serum (e.g. horse serum, swine serum), growth factors favoring the growth of mycoplasmas and an antibiotic mixture inhibiting the growth of most antagonistic associated bacteria. Mycoplasma selective culture media are often used for the isolation and identification of mycoplasma in pharmaceutical products, especially in bulk vaccines, cell banks, and virus cultures.
