It was a mix of 80mg/ml methicillin and 20mg/ml ampicillin. This worked
great until last year when methicillin was withdrawn from sale all
around the world. Something to do with resistant staphylocococcus such
that it's not being manufactured any more.

The problem with being on the cutting edge is that you occasionally get 
sliced from time to time....
