acumedia<sup>®</sup> CLED Agar

acumedia® CLED Agar

• Intended Use: CLED Agar is used for the differentiation and enumeration of microorganisms in urine.
• Product Summary: CLED Agar is an abbreviation for Cystine Lactose-Electrolyte-Deficient Agar. Sandys developed an
electrolyte-deficient medium that prevented Proteus spp. from swarming. Mackey and Sandys modified the formula by
substituting lactose and sucrose for mannitol, and increasing the amount of indicator and agar. While investigating this medium
for a dip slide technique, the formula was again modified omitting sucrose and adding cystine.
