The classic Mynox® is an antibiotic-free formulation; its activity is based on a biophysical mechanism, thus there is no development of resistant strains. Mycoplasma are permanently destroyed within 2-3 hours.
Free of antibiotics

Fig. Electron micrograph showing the effects of Mynox® when applied to contaminated cell cultures. (A) Mycoplasma contaminated cell culture before treatment. (B) With one application of Mynox® membranes of all mycoplasma are destroyed while the tissue cell membrane is unaffected. Black arrows indicate mycoplasmas, white arrows indicate parts of a tissue cell.
