Gentamicin Solution (Gentamicin Sulfate Solution), 10 mg/ml
Gentamicin Sulfate for cell culture is a water-soluble, broad-spectrum aminoglycoside antibiotic. It is effective against a wide variety of gram-positive and gram-negative bacteria.
This ready-to-use Gentamicin Sulfate Solution is commonly used for the prevention of bacterial contamination in cell cultures and comes in a concentration of 10 mg/ml.
Gentamicin was originally purified from the fungus Micromonospora purpurea. It acts by binding to the 30S subunit of the bacterial ribosome, leading to inhibition of protein synthesis and death in susceptible bacteria.
Gentamicin Sulfate can also be used as a selection antibiotic in molecular biology applications.
Our gentamicin for cell culture has been tested for performance with various cell lines and is suitable for use on primary cells.
