Name : DERMATOPHYTE TEST MEDIUM
  • Indended Use :

Description : Dermatophyte Test Medium is a selective and differential medium used for the detection and presumptive identification of dermatophytes from clinical and veterinary specimens (hair, skin and nails etc). Dermatophytes elaborate alkaline metabolites which elevate medium pH and, in the presence of phenol red indicator, change the medium colour from yellow to red. Cycloheximide, gentamicin and chloreteracycline are employed as selective agents to suppress growth of saprophytic fungi and bacteria.
