Antibiotics help to solve contamination issues and can attack bacterial structures in the cell. It is a common solution to use antibiotics in cell culture, such as penicillin, streptomycin, gentamicin or amphotericin as media supplements to reduce infection rates. The main reason for using antibiotics in cell culture is to kill bacteria or inhibit their proliferation. BioMEDIA has a complete set of antibiotics and transfection products to do just that.
