Ceftazidime Pentahydrate is an antibiotic useful for the treatment of a number of bacterial infections. It is a third-generation cephalosporin.
As a class, cephalosporins have activity against Gram-positive and Gram-negative bacteria. The balance of activity tips toward Gram-positive organisms for earlier generations; later generations of cephalosporins have more Gram-negative coverage. Ceftazidime is one of the few in this class with activity against Pseudomonas. It is not active against methicillin-resistant Staphylococcus aureus.
In Microbiology it is used as a component in Palcam Agar Base, a selective and differential diagnostic medium for the detection of Listeria monocytogenes.
