Cell culture contamination control: Prevention

Prevention of Mycoplasma contamination

Mycoplasma-Off™

Mycoplasma-Off™ is a new reagent for cleansing and disinfecting all laboratory surfaces, including benches, incubators, cell storage boxes and liquid nitrogen containers from mycoplasma contamination. Mycoplasma-Off™ is an alcohol-based solution of the powerful mycoplasma elimination reagent Mynox®. It can be used as a routine contamination control programme or for known or suspected mycoplasma infection. Mycoplasma-Off is very safe to use. It is also effective against S. aureus, S. faecalis, E. coli, P. mirabilis, P. aeruginosa, Candida albicans, HBV/HIV, Papova-, Adeno-, Polio- and Vaccinia viridae as well as TBC. The value of Mycoplasma-Off™ is enhanced by its excellent detergent properties, so that clean contamination-free surfaces can be achieved in one application. Mycoplasma-Off™ is supplied ready-to-use in a refillable spray bottle, or handy packs of wipes.

Where should Mycoplasma-Off® Wipes be used?

Mycoplasma-Off® Wipes can be used on hard, nonporous surfaces in every room of the lab including:

 

  • Safety cabinets
  • Pipettors
  • Cell storage boxes
  • Lab equipment exterior (like liquid nitrogen containers)
  • Incubator interior
  • Floors
  • Lab benches
  • Sinks
  • Faucets and handles
  • Doorknobs
  • Telephones
  • Computer keyboards
  • Mirrors & glass
  • Tile surfaces
  • Chairs
  • Garbage cans
  • Refrigerator exterior, including stainless
  • Staircase banisters
  • Toilet exterior
  • Light switches
  • Soap Dispensers
  • Windowsills

What’s in Mycoplasma-Off® Wipes?

Ingredients that make up one percent or more of the contents by weight are listed in descending order of concentration. Those that make up less than one percent, like the powerful mycoplasma elimination reagent Mynox®, are listed in alphabetical order.

  • Propan-1-ol
  • Ethanol
  • Water
  • Glutaraldehyde
  • Mynox®

Do Mycoplasma-Off® Wipes also work on shiny surfaces like mirrors?

Yes, you can use them to clean and disinfect shiny surfaces like mirrors, glass, and metal fixtures. Mycoplasma-Off® Wipes combine a thick, textured wipe with a unique clear-drying formula so you can clean in most places!

 

What types of surfaces can I use Mycoplasma-Off® Wipes on to clean?

Mycoplasma-Off® Wipes can be used on the following hard, nonporous surfaces:

  • Plastic laminate
  • Polymer composite
  • Synthetic laminate flooring
  • Vinyl flooring (for example, Linoleum)
  • Wood laminates
  • Glazed tile
  • Enamel
  • Painted dry wall
  • Stainless steel and aluminum appliance exteriors
  • Ceramic Tile
  • Chrome
  • Glass
  • Linoleum
  • Metal
  • Porcelain
  • Sealed Granite
  • Sealed Marble
  • Stainless Steel
  • Glazed Tile

 Use as directed.

Always test a small area first for stability and coloration. Mycoplasma-Off® Wipes should not be used on alcohol sensitive surfaces like acrylic and fiberglass.

 

Why are Mycoplasma-Off® Wipes better to use than paper towels or sponges?

Mycoplasma-Off® Wipes clean and disinfect at the same time. When you use a sponge or even paper towel, you can spread bacteria from one surface to another. Instead of killing germs, you are pushing them around and potentially increasing the contaminated surface area.

 

Do Mycoplasma-Off® Wipes contain bleach?

No. Mycoplasma-Off® Wipes are made with a bleach-free formula leaving a light, clean scent every time you wipe off a surface. Mycoplasma-Off® Wipes are alcohol-based and therefore non-corrosive.

 

Are Mycoplasma-Off® Wipes canister recyclable?

Yes. Our regular Mycoplasma-Off® Wipes canisters are made from recyclable polyethylene. Check with your local recycling company for a list of the materials it accepts for reprocessing. Also economic sackets are available for refill (Order No. 15-5001).

 

Can I use Mycoplasma-Off® Wipes as a hand wipe or for personal use?

No, Mycoplasma-Off® Wipes should not be used for personal cleansing. Please read and follow the product label instructions.

 

Do Mycoplasma-Off® Wipes have a clear-drying formula?

Yes, Mycoplasma-Off® Wipes combine a thick, honeycomb-textured wipe with a unique clear-drying formula. So they are great for cleaning and disinfecting shiny surfaces like glass tables, bathroom mirrors, and metal fixtures.

 

What kind of germs do Mycoplasma-Off® Wipes kill?

Mycoplasma-Off® Wipes kill mycoplasma within seconds. Wipes are also effective against common bacteria such as Staphylococcus aureus, Streptococcus faecalis, Escherichia coli, Proteus mirabilis, Pseudomonas aeruginosa, Candida albicans, Salmonella enterica, E. coli, and TBC. They also kill viruses including that cause colds and flu and HBV/HIV, Papova, Adeno, Polio and Vaccinia viridae.

 

How can I store Mycoplasma-Off® Wipes

Mycoplasma-Off® Wipes are stable at room temperature.
