YEAST MALT BROTH (YM BROTH)

Product Code TM 398

  • Description

    Yeast Malt Broth is formulated as per Wickerham for isolation and cultivation of yeasts, molds and other aciduric microorganisms. Fungi static materials such as sodium propionate and diphenyl are added to YM Broth to eliminate molds and thus permits enumeration of yeasts from mixed population.
    Wickerham suggested the use of Yeast Malt Broth as an enrichment medium for yeasts by adding a layer of sterile paraffin oil (about 1 cm) on the surface of inoculated broth. After the growth occurs it should be streaked on YM Agar to obtain isolated colonies of fermentative species. To isolate fermentative as well as oxidative strains, acidified YM Broth is placed on a rotary shaker for 1 or 2 days which favors development of yeast cells while the sporulation of molds is prevented and yeasts can be isolated by streaking on YM Agar.
