Gentamicin kills Gram-negative and Gram-positive bacteria, and mycoplasma. It works by binding to microbial ribosomes and preventing the initiation of protein synthesis. Gentamicin is very stable in solution and lasts many days in culture. It is generally more effective than streptomycin. This product should be used with caution, as high concentrations can retard cell growth. Recommended concentration in cell culture is 50 mg/L.
