    Amikacin

    $85.66 - $385.35

    Amikacin Hydrate is broad-spectrum aminoglycoside antibiotic derived from its counterpart, Kanamycin A.

    TOKU-E offers three forms of Amikacin:

    All forms have similar potencies and are freely soluble in water (50 mg/mL).


    Mechanism of ActionAmikacin Sulfate binds to the 30S ribosomal subunit (specifically the 16S rRNA and S12 protein) resulting in interference with the translational initiation complex and mRNA misreading, which leads to a faulty or nonexistent protein.
    SpectrumGram-negative and Gram-positive bacteria. Mycobacterium tuberculosis is also susceptible to Amikacin.
    Microbiology ApplicationsAmikacin is commonly used in clinical in vitromicrobiological antimicrobial susceptibility tests (panels, discs, and MIC strips) and rapid antimicrobial testing devices like the Vitek 2 from Biomerieux against gram negative microbial isolates. Medical microbiologists use this information to recommend antibiotic treatment options for infected patients. Samples of microbes grown in presence of a 30 µg Amikacin disc with a zone of inhibition of <14 mm in diameter are considered resistant. Intermediate resistance zones of inhibition are typically 15 mm-16 mm in diameter (1). Representative MIC values include:
    • Pseudomonas aeruginosa 0.25 µg/mL -512 µg/mL
    • Serratia marcescens ≤0.25 µg/mL - >32 µg/mL

    Eukaryotic Cell Culture ApplicationsAmikacin demonstrates lysosomal phospholipidosis in vitro, with the compound binding to the phospholipid bilayer.
