Ampicillin Sodium Salt

Ampicillin is a semi-synthetic bactericidal antibiotic in the penicillin family. It primarily acts on Gram-negative bacteria by inhibiting bacterial cell-wall synthesis via inactivating transpeptidases on the inner surface of the bacterial cell membranes.


Preparation of 500 - 1000X stock at 50 mg/ml: 1) Dissolve 5 grams of ampicillin sodium salt in 100 ml distilled water. 2) Vortex to make sure completely soluble. 3) Sterile by filtering through a 0.2 µm filter. 4) Aliquot and store at -20 0C up to six months.


Working Concentration: 50 - 100 µg/mL.
