    • Ampicillin (sodium salt)

    • Ampicillin is a bactericidal agent that acts by inhibition of transpeptidase, which is required for cell wall synthesis, and as such functions as a broad-spectrum antibiotic, effective against Gram(+) and Gram(-) bacteria.

    • Carbenicillin (disodium salt)

    • Carbenicillin, like ampicillin, is an antibiotic of the ß-lactam class and acts in an identical way as ampicillin, with the advantage that it is more stable. It is a bactericidal agent that acts by inhibition of transpeptidase, which is required for

    • Chloramphenicol

    • Chloramphenicol is a bacteriostatic agent that acts by binding to the 50S ribosomal subunit inhibiting peptidyl transferase required for protein synthesis. Chloramphenicol is broad-spectrum antibiotic, effective against a wide variety of Gram(+) and Gram(-) bacteria.

    • Gentamicin (sulphate)

    • Gentamicin is an aminoglycoside antibiotic complex comprised of 3 major components (C1, C1a, and C2). It inhibits protein synthesis by binding to the 30S subunit of the ribosome. It is a broad-spectrum antbiotic with activity against Gram (+) and Gram (-) bacteria, and mycoplasmas.

    • Kanamycin (sulphate)

    • Kanamycin, from Streptomyces kanamyceticus, is a bactericidal agent that acts by binding to the 30S subunit inhibiting protein synthesis, and as such functions as a broad-spectrum antibiotic, effective against many Gram(+) and most Gram(-) bacteria.    
  • Tetracycline (hydrochloride) Quick View
    • Tetracycline (hydrochloride) Quick View
    • Tetracycline (hydrochloride)

    • Tetracycline is a bacteriostatic agent that acts by preventing aminoacyl tRNA from binding to the ribosome A site, thus inhibiting protein synthesis. It also binds to the bacterial 50S ribosomal subunit, causing leaking of intracellular components via the membrane. Tetracycline is broad-spectrum antibiotic, effective against Gram(+) and Gram(-) bacteria.
