PP0891 – Malt Extract Agar with Chloramphenicol (80mg/L)

This is a medium intended primarily for the isolation of yeasts and moulds. The high carbohydrate content is said to ensure rapid growth while the low pH (5.4) inhibits most bacteria. The addition of Chloramphenicol (80mg/L), which will inhibit contaminating bacteria over a longer period of incubation, means that this particular formulation is also suitable for the cultivation of fungi.
