Intented use and fields of application

Universal Nutrient medium for the cultivation and enumeration of moulds and yeasts and dematophytes. Sabouraud Dextrose Agar contains 4% dextrose, which promotes the growth of these microorganisms. The low pH promotes spore and pigment formation of yeast and fungi, and inhibits the growth of bacteria. It therefore is a selective culture.

This Nutrient medium complies with the requirements of the methods of the EP/USP/JP. The use of Sabouraud Dextrose Agar medium according to the EP/USP/JP is recommended for the full analysis of Candida albicans in non-sterile pharmaceutical products.
