Mycoplasma Agar Powder for Microbiology - M0660

The Mycoplasma Agar powder is a high-quality product specifically designed for microbiology applications. It is recommended for the cultivation of mycoplasma, a class of bacteria that lack a cell wall and are notoriously difficult to grow in standard agar media. With its carefully selected composition, this agar powder provides an optimal environment for the growth of mycoplasma, allowing for successful and reliable culture studies.

Key Features and Benefits:

  • High-Quality Microbiology Product: This agar powder is manufactured to meet the highest standards in microbiology research, ensuring reliable and consistent results in your experiments.
  • Specialized for Mycoplasma Cultivation: The formulation of this agar powder has been specifically tailored to support the growth of mycoplasma, overcoming the challenges associated with culturing these bacteria.
  • Inhibitory and Toxic Effects-Free: The components contained in this basal medium do not exhibit inhibitory or toxic effects when used to culture mycoplasma. This guarantees optimal growth conditions and the preservation of mycoplasma viability.
  • Optimized Composition: The composition of this agar powder has been carefully optimized to provide the necessary nutrients and conditions for successful mycoplasma culture.
  • Powder Format: This agar is supplied as a convenient powder, allowing for easy preparation and flexibility in adjusting the concentration according to specific experimental requirements.


The Mycoplasma Agar powder is composed of carefully selected ingredients that promote the growth and proliferation of mycoplasma, while ensuring the absence of inhibitory or toxic effects. The specific composition includes:

  • Peptone: A mixture of enzymatically digested proteins, providing a source of amino acids and essential nutrients for mycoplasma growth.
  • Yeast Extract: Rich in vitamins, minerals, and amino acids, yeast extract provides additional nutritional support for mycoplasma culture.
  • Sodium Chloride: Provides essential ions and maintains osmotic balance in the growth medium.
  • Agar: A polysaccharide obtained from seaweed, agar provides a solid surface for mycoplasma culture, facilitating colony formation and isolation.

These carefully selected ingredients work synergistically to create an optimized growth medium that supports the cultivation of mycoplasma without inhibitory or toxic effects. This ensures the preservation of mycoplasma viability and the generation of accurate and reliable experimental results.

Instructions for Use:

  1. Weigh the desired amount of Mycoplasma Agar powder according to the specific experimental requirements and transfer it to a clean flask.
  2. Add the appropriate volume of distilled water to the flask, while stirring continuously to ensure the agar powder is completely dissolved. The exact volume of water required will depend on the desired concentration of the agar medium.
  3. Autoclave the agar medium at 121°C for 15 minutes to sterilize it and create a solid matrix suitable for mycoplasma culture.
  4. Allow the agar medium to cool down to approximately 45-50°C to avoid damaging the mycoplasma cultures. At this point, the medium can be supplemented with selective antibiotics or other additives if required.
  5. Pour the molten agar into sterile Petri dishes or culture tubes and allow it to solidify. Ensure that the agar surface is smooth and level.
  6. Inoculate the agar with the mycoplasma culture using sterile techniques and incubate at the appropriate temperature and conditions for mycoplasma growth.

Following these straightforward instructions will allow for the successful cultivation of mycoplasma using the Mycoplasma Agar powder. Enjoy reliable and consistent results for your microbiology experiments and research.
