This is a selective medium for the isolation of yeasts and fungi suitable for use in all areas of Mycology. The low pH of the medium inhibits most bacteria however Chloramphenicol (50mg/L) is added to further reduce the risk when processing material that may be heavily contaminated particularly with coliforms. Spore structures and pigmentation of fungi are generally well developed on this medium.
