Carbenicillin Disodium Salt, molecular biology grade antibiotic with great performance in a wide range of applications
Carbenicillin Disodium Salt is a semi-synthetic penicillin antibiotic with a relatively greater spectrum of activity against Gram-negative bacteria. As penicillin, is susceptible to ß-lactamase, which hydrolyzes the ß-lactam ring. Ampicillin is widely used in cell culture as a selective agent. Inhibits bacterial cell-wall synthesis by inactivating transpeptidases on the inner surface of the bacterial cell membrane.
