    Sparfloxacin

    $31.75 - $133.11

    Sparfloxacin is a synthetic fluoroquinolone antibiotic and is sparingly soluble in aqueous solution (0.113 mg/mL).

    Mechanism of ActionFluoroquinolone antibiotics target bacterial DNA gyrase, an enzyme which reduces DNA strain during replication. Because DNA gyrase is required during DNA replication, subsequent DNA synthesis and ultimately cell division is inhibited.
    SpectrumSparfloxacin is a broad spectrum antibiotic targeting a wide range of Gram positive, Gram negative, and Mycoplasma species especially those which cause pneumonia.
    Impurity ProfileRelated substances: Not more than 1.0%
    Pyridine: Not more than 0.02%
    Microbiology ApplicationsSparfloxacin is commonly used in clinical in vitro microbiological antimicrobial susceptibility tests (panels, discs, and MIC strips) against gram positive, gram negative, and Mycoplasma microbial isolates. Medical microbiologists use AST results to recommend antibiotic treatment options for infected patients. Representative MIC values include:

    • Mycoplasma pneumoniae 0.06 µg/mL – 0.12 µg/mL
    • Streptococcus pneumoniae 0.03 µg/mL - 8 µg/mL
