Cornmeal Agar with Polysorbate 80 with or without trypan blue is a solid medium recommended for use in qualitative procedures as a general-purpose media for cultivating fungi and stimulating chlamydospore production by Candida albicans.

  • General-purpose media: cultivate fungi and stimulate chlamydospore formation by Candida albicans.
  • Easy-to-read: Trypan blue provides a contrasting background for the optimal visualization of chlamydospores.
  • Ready-to-use: the convenience of prepared media.

Cornmeal agar consists of an infusion of cornmeal and agar, which provides the essential nutrients needed to support the growth of fungi and the production of chlamydospores by Candida albicans. The agar is a solidifying agent. Polysorbate 80 reduces surface tension and enhances the development of chlamydospores. Trypan blue is an optimal additive that provides a contrasting background, thereby permitting optimal visualization of chlamydospores.
