PEPTONE YEAST DEXTROSE AGAR (CANTINO)

Product Code TM 1276

  • Description

    Peptone Yeast Dextrose Agar (Cantino) was formulated by Cantino for use in the cultivation of aquatic fungi like Blastocladiella species. These aquatic fungi grow well when a sugar like dextrose is present in the medium. Cantino reported that Blastocladiella grow luxuriantly under visible light illumination due to increased CO2 fixation. Peptone Yeast Dextrose Agar (Cantino) is also recommended for the cultivation of Eikenella corrodens. E. corrodens is part of the resident microflora of mucous membrane surfaces in humans. Even though E. corrodens is generally regarded as organism of low virulence, it is usually involved in mixed bacterial infections, often with the viridans groups Streptococci and less frequently with various members of the Enterobacteriaceae.
