SABOURAUD DEXTROSE AGAR
An acid pH medium for the isolation of dermatophytes, other fungi and yeasts Recommended for the cultivation and isolation of yeasts and fungi, this medium has low PH value of 5.6 which enhances the growth of yeasts and fungi but inhibits the growth of most bacteria. Intended Use Sabouraud Dextrose Agar is used in qualitative procedures for cultivation of pathogenic and non-pathogenic fungi, particularly dermatophytes. The medium is rendered more selective for fungi by the addition of antimicrobics. Sabouraud Dextrose Broth and Sabouraud Maltose Agar and Broth are also used for culturing yeasts, molds and aciduric microorganisms.
