  • Description

    Mycoplasmas (mollicutes) are the smallest free-living microorganisms. Earlier Mycoplasmataceae were given the general title of pleuropneumonia like organism (PPLO), because of similarities to Mycoplasma mycoides (subsp. mycoides), the causative agent of bovine pleuropneumonia. Although some species are normal human respiratory tract flora, Mycoplasma pneumonia is an important cause of pneumoniae and a major cause of respiratory disease. Mycoplasma hominis, Mycoplasma genitalium and Ureaplasma urealyticum are important colonizers (and possible pathogens) of the human genital tract.
    This medium is recommended by European pharmacopoeia for the detection of non-avian mycoplasma. The optimum growth conditions are 35-38?C under microaerophilic conditions. For the cultivation of Mycoplasma the medium ingredients and all the supplements should be free of any toxic substances even in small amounts.
