Laconic Description: SCP-4023-EX is a chemical compound marketed as an antibiotic and patented by a Foundation front company. It is an oxazolidinone agent capable of killing nearly every gram-positive bacteria but lacks the toxicity expected for such an agent. SCP-4023-1 is a species of yeast that can produce the chemical and its mechanism for doing so is unique to itself.

The Foundation discovered it coating the surface of an SCP. It has been marketed and sold as a commercial drug, as well as developing an antibiotic resistance plasmid to ensure bacterial populations are kept alive.
