acumedia<sup>®</sup> PPLO Broth without CV

acumedia® PPLO Broth without CV

• Intended Use: PPLO Broth W/O CV is used with enrichments for the isolation and cultivation of Mycoplasma spp.
• Product Summary and Explanation: PPLO Broth W/O CV is prepared according to the formula described by Morton and Lecce.

Crystal Violet may inhibit the growth of Mycoplasma, and therefore was removed from an earlier formula described by Morton, Smith, Williams, and Eikenberg. Mycoplasma was discovered in a case of pleuropneumonia in a cow, and referred to as pleuropneumonia-like organism or PPLO. Mycoplasmas belong to the class of Mollicutes soft skin, which are the smallest free-living organisms. They are pleomorphic, varying in size from 0.2 to 0.3 micromillimeters.

Mycoplasma pneumoniae is a common cause of mild pneumonia and usually affects people younger than 40.5 Studies suggest that it causes 15 - 50% of all pneumonia in adults and an even higher percentage of pneumoniae in school-aged children. The symptoms include headache, fever, cough, chest pain, and sore throat.
