acumedia® Littman Agar

• Intended Use: Littman Agar is used for the isolation and cultivation of fungi.
• Product Summary and Explanation: Littman Agar is a selective medium for the primary isolation of fungi. Littman demonstrated this medium as valuable for culturing dermatophytes. Molds and yeasts form nonspreading, discrete colonies easily isolated in pure culture. Littman suggested using this medium for estimating normal fungal flora of sputum, feces, and other human specimens. Littman Agar can be used for single cell isolation of fungi and plate counts of viable saprophytic fungi in foodstuffs and air.
Littman compared Littman Agar with Sabouraud Dextrose Agar using a large variety of pathogenic and saprophytic fungi.2 Three times as many fungi from feces, sputum, skin scrapings, and hair grew on Littman Agar as compared with Sabouraud Dextrose Agar. Four times as many pathogenic dermatophytes grew on Littman Agar as compared with Sabouraud Dextrose Agar.
