AC Agar does not exhibit the toxicity shown by some media containing sodium thioglycollate for some organisms as reported by Christensen and Malin and Finn. Earlier studies performed have reported the usefulness of using this medium for the cultivation of a wide variety of organisms. Kolb and Schneither used AC Agar to test the viability of Bacillus anthracis after exposure to methyl bromide to test the efficiency of methyl bromide as a germicidal and sporicidal agent.
