BICOMARIN™ 5% Powder


BICOMARIN™ 5% Powder

Key Benefits:

  • The active ingredient (bicozamycin benzoate) is a pro-drug to enhance oral absorption for aquaculture use. The pro-drug is hydrolyzed in the fish body stimulating the bactericidal activity of bicozamycin.

  • Photobacterium damsela sp. piscicida and gram-negative bacteria that are not susceptible to other antibiotics are susceptible to Bicomarin*. This antibiotic is ineffective against gram-positive bacteria.

  • No cross resistance or transmission of resistant plasmid was observed during Bicomarin trials.
