Mycoplasma GU Culture System

Each Mycoplasma GU Culture System individual test contains one agar plate and two broth tubes (Broth U and Broth M). The culture media are ready-to-use and stable up to the expiry date given on label.

The Mycoplasma GU Culture System is suitable for culture, identification, and colony count of urogenital mycoplasmas, especially Mycoplasma hominis and Ureaplasma urealyticum. Mycoplasma fermentans may also be identified.

Growth of M. hominis changes the colour of the Broth M from yellow to red, whereas U. urealyticum changes the corresponding colour of the Broth U. The colonies are visible under a conventional light microscope, where M. hominis appears with "fried egg" morphology (Photo above).

Package: 10 individually packed tests.

Suggested retail price: 40 euros (VAT not included).


Mycoplasma GU Screen

Each individual test contains two broth tubes one for the growth of Mycoplasma hominis and the other for the Ureaplasma urealyticum. The kit is suitable for the screening and the identification of urogenital mycoplasmas.

Growth of mycoplasmas leads to a colour change of the corresponding medium from yellow to red (figure below).


Note: The colour of the packaged M and U broths is always clear yellow and never orange or red.

Package: 10 individually packed tests.

Suggested retail price: 69 euros (VAT not included).
