Back to top


Gentamicin (gentamicin sulfate) is a water-soluble antibiotic drug originally purified from the fungus Micromonospora purpurea. Gentamicin acts by binding to the 30S subunit of the bacterial ribosome, leading to inhibition of protein synthesis and promotion of cell death in susceptible bacteria.

Using Gentamicin
Gentamicin is effective against a wide variety of gram-positive and gram-negative bacteria, and is used for the prevention of bacterial contamination in cell cultures. The recommended working concentration ranges from 0.5 to 50 µg/mL. We offer a variety of antibiotics and antimycotics for cell culture applications.

Dual-site cGMP manufacturing
Gentamicin is manufactured at a cGMP-compliant facility located in Grand Island, New York. The facility is registered with the FDA as a medical device manufacturer and is certified to ISO 13485 standards. For supply chain continuity, we offer a comparable Gentamicin product made in our Scotland facility (15710-049).
