Description

Enrofloxacin is a fluoroquinolone antibiotic commonly used in veterinary medicine.

TOKU-E offers two forms of enrofloxacin, enrofloxacin (E016) and enrofloxacin HCl (E007). Enrofloxcin is slightly soluble in aqueous solution and enrofloxacin HCl is freely soluble at 10 mg/mL.

    CAS Number

    93106-60-6

    Molecular Formula

    C19H22FN3O3

    Molecular Weight

    359.39

    Mechanism of Action

    Fluoroquinolone antibiotics target bacterial DNA gyrase, an enzyme which reduces DNA strain during replication. Because DNA gyrase is required during DNA replication, subsequent DNA synthesis and ultimately cell division is inhibited.

    Storage Conditions

    2-8°C

    Tariff Code

    2933.59.3600

    Spectrum

    Enrofloxacin is a broad spectrum antibiotic targeting a wide variety of gram positive and gram negative bacteria and a few Mycoplasma species.

Applications

    Microbiology Applications

    Enrofloxacin is commonly used in clinical in vitro microbiological antimicrobial susceptibility tests (panels, discs, and MIC strips) against gram positive, gram negative, and certain Mycoplasma species. Medical microbiologists use AST results to recommend antibiotic treatment options for infected patients. Representative MIC values include:

    • Pseudomonas aeruginosa 0.5 µg/mL – 2 µg/mL
    • Escherichia coli 0.004 µg/mL – 0.03 µg/mL
