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.

Sabouraud Dextrose Agar (pH 5.6)/ Plate Count Agar biplates contain solid media and are recommended for use in qualitative procedures to isolate and cultivate pathogenic yeast and molds from clinical specimens.
This medium contains casein and meat peptones that supply nitrogenous compounds, amino acids and peptides necessary for the growth of fungi. Dextrose is the energy source which serves to support the growth of fungi. Chloramphenicol (optional) can be added as a selective agent to inhibit bacterial growth.
