    Imipenem

    $78.00 - $133.00

    Imipenem is a broad-spectrum β-lactam antibiotic, a carbapenem effective against extended spectrum beta-lactamase (ESBL) producing Enterobacteriaceae, a group of pathogenic microbes resistant to many first line beta-lactam antibiotics and certain cephalosporins.  It is soluble in aqueous solution.

    We also offer:

    • Imipenem mixture w/cilastatin (I005)
    Mechanism of Action β-lactams interfere with PBP (penicillin binding protein) activity involved in the final phase of peptidoglycan synthesis. PBP’s are enzymes which catalyze a pentaglycine crosslink between alanine and lysine residues providing additional strength to the cell wall. Without a pentaglycine crosslink, the integrity of the cell wall is severely compromised and ultimately leads to cell lysis and death. Resistance to β-lactams is commonly due to cells containing plasmid encoded β-lactamases. Like many members of the carbapenem subgroup, imipenem is highly resistant to β-lactamase activity.
    Spectrum Imipenem is a broad-spectrum antibiotic targeting a wide range of aerobic and anaerobic Gram-positive and Gram -negative bacteria.
    Microbiology Applications Imipenem is commonly used in clinical in vitro microbiological antimicrobial susceptibility tests (panels, discs, and MIC strips) against Gram-positive and Gram-negative microbial isolates. Imipenem has also shown high potency against high-resistant superbug strains.Medical microbiologists use AST results to recommend antibiotic treatment options.  Representative MIC values include:
    • Pseudomonas aeruginosa 0.25 µg/mL – 12 µg/mL
    • Bacteroides fragilis 0.008 µg/mL – 1 µg/mL

    Plant Biology Applications

    Imipenem has been shown to be effective against bacteria from the genus Burkholderia, a well described plant pathogen, and was shown to be effective for sour skin (onions), slippery skin (bulbs), and cavity disease (mushrooms)(Sojanova et al, 2007).
