Sab Dex Agar with Chloramphenicol (0.5g/L)

Sabouraud Dextrose Agar with Chloramphenicol (0.5g/L) is a selective media for the isolation of yeasts and fungi suitable for use in all areas of mycology. Sabouraud dextrose agar is a modification of a medium originally described by Sabouraud.(1)
The tryptone and meat peptone provides the required nitrogen, carbon and vitamins. The high concentration of
dextrose is included as an energy source. Due to the higher pH of the medium, an increased concentration of
chloramphenicol is included to improve the selectivity of the media and inhibit a range of Gram-positive and Gram negative bacteria.
