Product properties


Each ml contains 50 mg of Gentamicin

Mechanism of Action:

Gentamicin belongs to Aminoglycosides family and shows its antimicrobial effects by means of effect on 30s ribosomal unit and interference in protein synthesis in susceptible organisms. Gentamicin is effective on gram negative bacteria like E.coli, Klebsiella, Proteus, Pseudomonas, Salmonella, Enterobacter, Serratia and Shigella and also on staphylococcus and Streptococcus.

Gentamicin is rapidly absorbed in ruminants after intramuscular injection. Its half life is 1-3 hours. Excretion is by renal filtration and via urine. Gentamicin has little permeability into CSF.
