Nitrocefin description and applications.
Nitrocefin is a cephalosporin with chromogenic properties and is routinely used to detect beta-lactamase enzymes produced by beta-lactam resistant bacteria. Nitrocefin can also be used as a substrate for beta-lactamases to determine the rate of beta-lactamase mediated hydrolysis.
