Sabouraud-Dextrose-Agar according to the EP/USP/JP (Sabouraud-Agar) (SAB)
|Format:||Petri Dish, 90mm|
|Storage conditions:||Dry, in closed bag at 15 - 22°C|
|pH:||5.6 ± 0.2 at 25°C|
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.
