Malt Extract Agar

Malt Extract Agar

This is a medium for the cultivation of yeasts and moulds. The high carbohydrate content is said to ensure rapid growth while the low pH (5.4) inhibits most bacteria. Malt Extract Agar can also be used for the cultivation of fungi although with the prolonged incubation necessary cultures may become overgrown by bacteria.
