Fungin - Antifungal Reagent 7 | 85-ANT-FN-1
Fungin is used as a "routine addition" to eukaryotic cell culture media to prevent fungal (including yeast) contamination in small to large scale mammalian cell cultures. Fungin™ can also be used to eliminate fungal contamination (including yeast) in eukaryotic cell cultures. It is effective against commonly found cell culture contaminants, such as Candida albicans and Aspergillus.
Fungin is an excellent alternative to amphotericin B, a polyene antifungal antibiotic. Unlike amphotericin B, Fungin is a highly stable compound and does not need to be dissolved in toxic deoxycholate.
Fungin provides maximum protection against fungal contamination with minimal cytotoxicity. Fungin™ is tested in cell culture and can be added to media containing commonly used antibacterial agents, such as penicillin and streptomycin (Pen-Strep).
Its use has been cited in numerous publications.
