The Cell Culture Contamination Preventive 

Zellshield™ protects cell cultures from a broad range of common contaminants. The extremely powerful combination of innovative antibiotics is blocking the bacterial DNA synthesis, the protein biosynthesis or shows macrolidic properties. These bactericidal features allow the permanent removal of the contaminants from the culture. The use of old fashioned antibiotics like penicillin/streptomycin, nystatin or amphotericin B is not longer required! The easy applicable 100x aqueous solution is sterile filtrated and ready-to-go.

Format

Zellshield™ is shipped at room temperature and should be stored in the dark below -18°C.

Zellshield™

Zellshield™ protects cell cultures from a broad range of common contaminants and protects against most intracellular and extracellular growing gram negative and gram positive bacteria, mycoplasma, protozoon, fungi and yeast

Minerva Biolabs

Application

  • For the  protection of cell cultures from a broad range of common contaminants

Benefits of Zellshield™ 

    • Broad Applicability - Zell Shield™ can be used for permanent cell cultures as well as for the protection of freshly prepared primary cells. 
    • No cell toxicity - Up to date, no cytotoxic effect on various cell lines treated has been reported if used as described. 
    • Specific - Zellshield™ is active against most intracellular and extracellular growing gram negative and gram positive bacteria, mycoplasma, protozoon, fungi and yeast. 
    • Easy to use - Simply add Zellshield™ directly to a freshly prepared cell culture or the premixed cell medium. 
    • Stability - The reagent is stable and active during typical incubation periods and conditions. 
    • Low Resistance Risk - The well selected antimicrobials show an extremely low resistance bias. Their combined activity reduces the probability for the survival of resistant mutants.
