General description

Meropenem trihydrate (MRP) belongs to the carbapenem group of compounds. It is susceptible to degradation at high temperature and humidity. It is soluble in methanol-water or acetone-water combinations. It is used as an antibacterial agent for treating meningitis and pneumonia.

Application

Meropenem trihydrate has been used in the
  • antibiotic susceptibility testing of E coli isolates from harbor estuary sediment samples
  • in the bacterial killing assay and for screening antibiotic resistance of cystic fibrosis patient′s sputum based Staphylococcus aureus transformed macrophages in phagocyte infection
  • for screening Enterococcus faecalis from human bile

Biochem/physiol Actions

Meropenem trihydrate is an ultra-broad spectrum beta-lactam antibiotic active against both Gram-positive and Gram-negative bacteria.
