This is a medium specifically intended for sensitivity testing of Haemophilus influenzae and Haemophilus parainfluenzae. Based on Mueller Hinton Agar with added Yeast Extract the medium is enriched by the addition of Haemin and NAD (Nicotinamide Adenine Dinucleotide (V Factor)). It contains very low levels of antimicrobial antagonists that allow testing of Sulphonamides and Trimethoprim to be performed with confidence and is recommended by the Clinical and Laboratory Standards Institute (CLSI).
