DEXTROSE AGAR BASE, EMMONS (SABOURAUD DEXTROSE AGAR BASE, MODIFIED) (VEG.)

Product Code TMV 090

  • Description

    Sabouraud Dextrose Agar Base, Modified (Veg) is prepared by using Veg special peptone in place of Peptone special which makes the medium free of BSE/TSE risks. Sabouraud Dextrose Agar was devised by Sabouraud for the cultivation of dermatophytes. Though the low pH of this medium is favorable for the growth of fungi especially dermatophytes, some fungi are inhibited. Emmons modified the original formulation by adjusting the pH close to neutral to increase the recovery of fungi and by reducing the dextrose content from 40 to 20 g/l. Sabouraud Dextrose Agar Base, Modified (Veg) is the modification of this medium using vegetable peptone instead of animal based peptone.
