  • Description

    Corn Meal Agar is a general purpose medium used for the cultivation of fungi and for the study of Candida species for the chlamydospore production. Corn Meal Agar with Dextrose is used for the cultivation of commonly occuring as well as phytopathological fungi. The addition of dextrose enhances the chromogenesis of some species of Trichophyton. Pollack and Benham have described the usefulness of this medium for studying the morphology of Candida. Corn Meal Agar should not be used for chlamydospores production Some Candida species lose their ability of chlamydospore formation by repeated sub culturing.
