PPM - Plant Preservative Mixture
The Plant Preservative Mixture containes antibiotics for plant tissue culture.
Plant Cell Technologies makes this heat stable preservative or biocide for better plant culture and proliferation.
PPM is used to effectively prevent or reduce microbial contamination in plant tissue culture. The Mixture Medium will not inhibit callus production or seed germination.
Medium used for in vitro seed germination, callus proliferation and callus regeneration.
PPM™ prevents the germination of both bacteria and fungi spores and is less expensive than commonly used antibiotics.
PPM inhibits airborne contamination, waterborne contamination and contamination introduced from human contact, reduce endogenous contamination.
Despite the most stringent use of sterile techniques, the contamination of plant cell and plant tissue cultures remain a persistent problem that can result in losses ranging from small number of cultures to the loss of whole batches.
1. PPM™ is broad-based and effective against fungi.
2. PPM™ is less expensive than antibiotics, making it affordable for wide and routine use.
3. Since PPM™ targets and inhibits multiple enzymes, the formation of resistant mutants towards PPM™ is very unlikely.
4. PPM™ is heat stable and in general can be autoclaved with media.
Bulk PPM 1 liter bottles can be bought from Gentaur.
Protocol for Plant Preservative Mixture (PPM)
PPM affects key Krebs cycle and electron transport chain enzymes. At optimal doses, Plant Preservative Mixture™,
It is an extremely effective preservative/biocide that does not affect in vitro germination , proliferation and callus regeneration. It only inhibits barterial, mycotical and fungal growth.
Despite the use of sterile techniques, contamination of plant cell and tissue cultures remains a persistent problem that can result in losses ranging from a small number of cultures to the loss of entire batches.
PPM™ prevents the germination of bacteria and fungus spores. It is heat stable and can therefore be autoclaved with commonly used antibiotic culture media.
PPM™ can, and should, be used as a standard ingredient in plant tissue culture media. In addition, it is less expensive comparedM™ has been primarily designed to inhibit contamination from microbes in the air and water or contamination from human contact, it can also – in many cases – be used to reduce endogenous contamination.
The sole producer of PPM™ is Plant Cell Technologies Inc., of which Gentaur Molecular Products is the official distributor for France and Europe.
