    Teicoplanin A3-1

    $205.00 - $715.00

    Teicoplanin A3-1 is a minor polar analog of a family of lipoglycopeptides produced by Actinoplanes teichomyceticus. Teicoplanins possess potent broad-spectrum antibiotic activity against Gram-positive bacteria, including MRSA and E. faecalis. Teicoplanin A3-1 is the common degradation product of Teicoplanins A2-1 to 5, resulting from cleavage of the lipoaminoglycoside substituents.

    Teicoplanin A3-1 is soluble in ethanol, methanol, DMF and DMSO.

    Molecular Formula C72H68Cl2N8O28
    Microbiology Applications

    Teicoplanin is commonly used in clinical in vitro microbiological antimicrobial susceptibility tests (panels, discs, and MIC strips) against Gram-positive isolates.  Medical microbiologists use AST results to recommend antibiotic treatment options.  Representative MIC values include:

    • Clostridium difficile 0.125 µg/mL – 0.25 µg/mL
    • Staphylococcus aureus ≤ 0.12  µg/mL – 8 µg/mL
