Mycoplasma treatment of cell cultures

Help, dear netters!!!!!!!

Our cell cultures are contaminated with mycoplamas. After 4 weeks of
treatment with tiamuline (4.3 µg/ml), doxicycline (4.4 µg/ml) and
lincomycine (27 µg/ml), we have still detected mycoplasmas by PCR method.
Cell cultures which were successfully treated (negative PCR), again were
positive by PCR one month later.

Is there a better treatment? What can we do?

Thanks sincerely for your help!
