Cat. No.: HY-B0200 Purity: >98.0%
Handling Instructions

Cephalexin (Cefalexin; Cephacillin) is a potent, orally active and the first-generation cephalosporin antibiotic. Cephalexin kills gram-positive and some gram-negative bacteria by disrupting the growth of the bacterial cell wall. Cephalexin monohydrate is used for the research of pneumonia, strep throat, and bacterial endocarditis, et al.

For research use only. We do not sell to patients.

Description

Cephalexin (Cefalexin; Cephacillin) is a potent, orally active and the first-generation cephalosporin antibiotic. Cephalexin kills gram-positive and some gram-negative bacteria by disrupting the growth of the bacterial cell wall. Cephalexin monohydrate is used for the research of pneumonia, strep throat, and bacterial endocarditis, et al[1].

In Vitro

Cefalexin is not effective against infections caused by methicillin-resistant Staphylococcus aureus (MRSA), Enterococcus, or Pseudomonas. Cefalexin disrupts the synthesis of the peptidoglycan layer of bacterial cell walls which is responsible for cell wall structural integrity[1].
