Mycoplasma Agar



This is specialized agar allows growth only of Mycoplasma colonies from individual cow and bulk tank milk samples, while inhibiting growth from all other environmental organisms present.



This light to medium amber agar is prepared from a purified agar base with the addition of PPLO broth. This agar has been formulated with inhibitors to discourage a variety of non-target organisms.  The Udder Health Systems Mycoplasma Agar also utilizes a production method that ensures the development of the classic “Fried Egg” colony centers. This highly selective agar is especially formulated to inhibit slow growing contaminating organisms that show up in 10 day incubation.

Refer to table on back for expected culture responses.
