Product Information 
Meropenem Bradex is a broad-spectrum antibiotic belonging to the group carbapenem antibiotics.

The bactericidal effect of meropenem is exerted by inhibiting the bacterial cell wall synthesis of gram-positive and gram-negative bacteria via binding to penicillin-binding proteins (PBP).

As with other beta-lactam antibiotics, the time that meropenem concentrations exceed the minimum inhibitory concentration, MIC, (T> MIC) has been shown to correlate best with effect.
