Protection against mycoplasma, bacteria and fungi
Normocin? is an innovative antibiotic formulation designed to prevent cell lines from mycoplasma, bacterial and fungal contaminations.
Normocin? can be routinely added in the cell culture medium in combination with Penicillin/Streptomycin to broaden the anti-bacterial spectrum.
