Enriched Media – Enrichment media refers to the liquid media that inhibits the growth of unwanted bacteria. Enriched media allow the growth of a wide variety of microorganisms. Substances like blood, a serum is added to grow fastidious bacteria. E.g., blood agar, chocolate agar

Selective Media Selective media are used to select for the growth of a particular “selected” microorganism. A hindering substance like antibiotics, dyes, chemicals, alteration to pH, is added to allow the growth of a particular microorganism.

Differential Media These are designed in a way that helps in distinguishing different types of microorganisms based on their colony colour. Some of the substances used in this include MacConkey agar, CLED agar, TCBS agar, XLD agar.
