Vancomycin Hydrochloride EZ Pak™ for 100 mg/mL Solution
Vancomycin hydrochloride is a member of the glycopeptide antibiotic class derived from Streptomyces orientalis. It is effective against gram-positive bacteria and used in studies of antibiotic resistance bacteria and nanoparticle transport studies. Exhibiting low toxicity to plants, vancomycin is suitable for plant selection and prevention of bacterial contamination in plant cell culture applications.
Vancomycin functions by inhibiting bacterial cell wall synthesis. It prevents transfer and addition of muramylpentapeptides that make up the peptidoglycan cell wall. It may be combined with cefotaxime of carbenicillin to display a synergistic effect against Agrobacterium species.
The vancomycin hydrochloride EZ Pak™ is the fastest and easiest way to make a set amount of sterile vancomycin hydrochloride solution. The kit includes pre-weighed vancomycin hydrochloride powder, a sterile filter, and a sterile container for the filtered solution. No need to calculate, simply add the stated amount of deionized H₂O, filter, and pour into the labeled bottle for easy usage. The EZ Pak™ includes high-quality GoldBio Vancomycin hydrochloride and the sterile solution is ready for tissue culture, bacterial media, or any number of uses.
The 25 ml, 50 ml, and 100 ml require a vacuum manifold for easy vacuum filtering, while the 10 ml pack size comes with a syringe filter.
