Ezdetect DAPI Stain Kit for Mycoplasma
197.00 €Go to shop
The EZdetectTM DAPI stain kit has been designed for detection of Mycoplasma based on rapid uptake of the fluorescent stain DAPI by cellular DNA. DNA-bound DAPI has approximately 20-fold greater fluorescence than nonDNA-bound DAPI. Its selectivity for DNA (over RNA) and high cell-permeability allows for efficient staining of the nuclei. Mycoplasma staining with DAPI appears as a fine particulate or filamentous staining over the cytoplasm at 100X magnification.

Mycoplasma is a genus of bacteria that lack a cell wall around their cell membrane. Without a cell wall, they are unaffected by many common antibiotics such as penicillin or other beta-lactam antibiotics that target cell wall synthesis. They can be parasitic or saprotrophic. Several species are pathogenic in humans, including M. pneumoniae, which is an important cause of atypical pneumonia and other respiratory disorders, and M. genitalium, which is believed to be involved in pelvic inflammatory diseases. Mycoplasma species are the smallest bacterial cells yet discovered, can survive without oxygen, and come in various shapes. For example, M. genitalium is flask-shaped (about 300 x 600 nm), while M. pneumoniae is more elongated (about 100 x 1000 nm). Hundreds of mycoplasmas infect animals
