Tinidazole is an anti-parasitic drug.
Purity & Quality Control
|Description||Tinidazole is an anti-parasitic drug.|
Tinidazole kills the metronidazole-susceptible isolates at a low MLC but is effective against only 4 of the 12 metronidazole-resistant isolates.  Tinidazole exhibits activity against pathogenic protozoa (eg, Tricbomonas vaginalis, Entamoeba bistolytica, Giardia duodenalis), a wide range of clinically significant anaerobic bacteria (eg, Bacteroides fragilis, Clostridium difficile), and the microaerophilic bacterium Helicobacter pylori. Tinidazole is reduced to cytotoxic intermediates that covalently bind to DNA, causing irreversible damage in susceptible protozoal and bacterial cells.  Tinidazole inhibits against 104 T. vaginalis isolates with mean MLC of 1014.9 μM.  Tinidazole slightly affects trophozoite morphology, adherence and viability against Giardia duodenalis.  Tinidazole is against 40 Clostridium difficile, 10 Prevotella bivia and 11 Bacteroides fragilis clinical isolates, the geometric mean MICs of tinidazole and metronidazole are, respectively: C. difficile, 0.31 μg/mL and 0.28 μg/mL; P. bivia, 2.33 μg/mL and 1.52 μg/mL; B. fragilis, 0.5 μg/mL and 0.71 μg/mL.

* 1 mg/ml means slightly soluble or insoluble.
* Please note that Selleck tests the solubility of all compounds in-house, and the actual solubility may differ slightly from published values. This is normal and is due to slight batch-to-batch variations.
Calculate the mass, volume or concentration required for a solution. The Selleck molarity calculator is based on the following equation:
Mass (g) = Concentration (mol/L) × Volume (L) × Molecular Weight (g/mol)
*When preparing stock solutions, please always use the batch-specific molecular weight of the product found on the via label and MSDS / COA (available on product pages).
Calculate the dilution required to prepare a stock solution. The Selleck dilution calculator is based on the following equation:
Concentration (start) x Volume (start) = Concentration (final) x Volume (final)
This equation is commonly abbreviated as: C1V1 = C2V2 ( Input Output )
* When preparing stock solutions always use the batch-specific molecular weight of the product found on the vial label and MSDS / COA (available online).

Definitions of molecular mass, molecular weight, molar mass and molar weight:
Molecular mass (molecular weight) is the mass of one molecule of a substance and is expressed in the unified atomic mass units (u). (1 u is equal to 1/12 the mass of one atom of carbon-12)
Molar mass (molar weight) is the mass of one mole of a substance and is expressed in g/mol.
