This is a selective chromogenic medium for the detection of Malassezia spp., especially M.restricta and M.globosa, in veterinary or clinical specimens. Malassezia spp. is a commensal organism in humans and animals that can cause severe dermatitis or otitis infections. The medium is supplemented with Glycerol and Tween 40 to enhance the in-vitro growth of Malassezia spp. due to the complex lipid requirements of these yeasts. Appearance and differentiation of Malassezia spp. is readily apparent by the distinctive colonial colours allowing for differentiation from Candida spp. in specimens. The inclusion of chloramphenicol ensures the inhibition of bacterial species during incubation of specimens.
