Q:

What are inhibitors of the MycoAlert Assay

A:

The main inhibitors of the MycoAlert reaction would be things that affect the

luciferase detection. Agents which potentially quench the light signal include

high levels of salt, edta and other chelating agents, very high levels of

sera, highly coloured broths and compounds (normal media containing phenol red

is OK as the assay has been developed in the presence of this) and kinase

inhibitors.
