Carbenicillin is a semi-synthetic derivative of penicillin, active as a broad spectrum antibiotic. Carbenicillin belongs to the penicillin group of beta-lactam antibiotics. Carbenicillin disrupts bacterial cell wall synthesis by disrupting peptidoglycan cross-linking. Antimicrobial spectrum includes Gram-positive, Gram-negative bacteria and Pseudomonas.

Features & Benefits

  • Ready-to-use solution - no sterile filtration required
  • Simple - avoids handling of toxic or harmful substances


  • Cell culture
  • Plasmid selection
  • Gene regulation


Carbenicillin is a broad-spectrum semisynthetic penicillin derivative that disrupts bacterial cell wall synthesis by disrupting peptidoglycan cross-linking.  It is active against most isolates of Pseudomonas aerogenosa and certain indole-positive Proteus strains that are resistant to ampicillin. 

The gene conferring resistance to ampicillin and its analogs, ampr, codes for the enzyme β-lactamase. Carbenicillin is less sensitive to β-lactamase than ampicillin.
