acumedia<sup>®</sup> Mycological Agar

acumedia® Mycological Agar

• Intended Use: Mycological Agar is used for the cultivation of fungi.
• Product Summary and Explanation: The value of selective media for initial cultivation of pathogenic fungi has been demonstrated by numerous investigators. Historically, media for fungi generally relied on an acid pH to make the media less suitable for growth of many bacteria. Recently, media have been developed using neutral or slightly alkaline reactions, antibiotics, bile salts, and dyes as selective agents against bacteria. Mycological Agar is an excellent basal medium and antifungal agents may be added to study their affect on fungi.
Mycological Agar is prepared according to the formulation suggested by Huppert and Walker. Mycological Agar has a lower dextrose content than Sabouraud Dextrose Agar, and recommended for the isolation and cultivation of fungi from clinical specimens, foods, and cosmetics. This medium may be adjusted to pH 4.0 after autoclaving by adding sterile lactic acid or acetic acid.
