Sabouraud Dextrose Agar, pH 5.6/Plate Count Agar Biplate

Catalog number: R110504

Isolate pathogenic yeast and molds from clinical specimens with Thermo Scientific™ Remel™ Sabouraud Dextrose Agar (pH 5.6)/ Plate Count Agar. Sabouraud Dextrose Agar is a modification of the original medium developed by Sabouraud in 18921 for cultivation of dermatophytes. The low pH of 5.6 enhances the growth of fungi, especially dermatophytes, and is slightly inhibitory to bacteria in clinical specimens2. Chloramphenicol may be added to the medium to make it more selective.
