Hello!
	1) How is Ciprofloxacin dissolved for use in tissue culture and 
        2) What is the concentration generally used in tissue culture

I have Ciprox. powder (as oral capsules, 250 mg) but it dosen't dissolve
in PBS, Water, 0.85% NaCl, RPMI 1640 (at 1 mg/ml). Injectible solution
(i/v) is available as 2 mg/ml solution in 0.9% NaCl. Does oral capsule in
powder form contain any additives (not mentioned on the packet)? 

Thanks 

CJ
