Difco™ Sabouraud Dextrose Agar is a dehydrated culture media used in qualitative procedures for cultivation of pathogenic and nonpathogenic fungi, particularly dermatophytes.

  • The addition of antimicrobics is a modification designed to increase bacterial inhibition.
  • The low pH of approximately 5.6 is favorable for the growth of fungi and slightly inhibitory to contaminating bacteria in clinical specimens.
  • General Chapters 61 and 62 of the USP describe test methods for using Sabouraud Dextrose Agar when performing the microbial enumeration tests and tests for isolating Candida albicans from nonsterile pharmaceutical products.
