Sabouraud Dextrose Agar 500g, Oxoid
Thermo ScientificTM OxoidTM
Identify dermatophytes and other fungi and yeasts in clinical specimens and environmental samples with the acidic Thermo Scientific™ Oxoid™ Sabouraud Dextrose Agar. The low pH supports the growth of fungi while inhibiting bacterial growth in mixed samples. Fungi maintain their typical cultural appearance and, thus, may be readily identified according to standard macroscopic characters.
