Gentamycin sulfate is a water-soluble antibiotic originally purified from the fungus Micromonospora purpurea. Gentamycin acts by binding to the 30S subunit of the bacterial ribosome leading to inhibition of protein synthesis and death in susceptible bacteria. Gibco™ Gentamycin is effective against a wide variety of gram-positive and gram-negative bacteria, and is used to prevent the contamination of cell cultures by bacteria. The recommended working concentration ranges from 0.5 to 50 µg /mL.
- For use in cell culture media to inhibit gram-positive and gram-negative bacteria
- Concentration: 50mg/ml
- This product cannot be shipped to a private residence.
Gentamycin Sulfate Solution is an inhibitor in the growth of gram-positive and gram-negative microorganisms. IBI Gentamycin Sulfate is a broad spectrum antibiotic that is a more effective in-vitro bacterial inhibitor than combined streptomycin-penicillin.

Molecular Biology Specifications
This antibiotic is non-toxic to tissue culture monolayers and does not inhibit virus replication. It inhibits the growth of a wide variety of gram-positive and gram-negative microorganisms, including strains resistant to tetracycline, chloramphenicol, kanamycin, and colistin; particularly the strains of Pseudomonas, Proteus, Staphylococcus, and Streptococcus.
Gentamycin Sulfate inhibits bacterial protein biosynthesis by binding to the 30S subunit of ribosome.
