Axygen® Smart Ampicillin™ Antibiotic Reagent for Expression Studies, Corning®
Smart Ampicillin™ 1000x is a specially formulated Ampicillin™ antibiotic that is optimized for expression studies. Comes in convenient pre-made solutions of 1ml at 1,000x concentrate. Smart Ampicillin™ is superior to common antibiotics like Ampicillin, Carbenicillin and Methicillin. These regular antibiotics are degraded by enzymes secreted by bacteria over time and the result is the undesirable appearance of satellite or non-recombinant colonies.
Smart Ampicillin™ is specially formulated to overcome this bacterial enzyme degradation and hence present you with Satellite free recombinant colonies for an extended period of time.
