acumedia<sup>®</sup> Dermatophyte Test Medium

acumedia® Dermatophyte Test Medium

• Intended Use: Dermatophyte Test Medium is used for the selective isolation of dermatophytic fungi.
• Product Summary: In 1969, Taplin et al. developed this medium for the isolation and recognition of dermatophytic fungi, the
causative agent of ringworm from hair, nails, and skin. Dermatophyte Test Medium is preferred for isolation and early
recognition of Microsporum, Trichophyton, and Epidermophyton genera because of a distinct color change in the medium.
Rapidly-growing species may produce a complete color change in the medium in 3 days. The slower-growing species will change
the indicator in longer time periods. Other organisms may grow, but can be recognized as nondermatophytes by lack of a color
change. A few organisms, including saprophytes, yeasts, and bacteria are capable of changing the medium from red to yellow,
but are easily recognized by their distinctive colonial morphology.
