Sabouraud agar

Sa·bou·raud a·gar

(sah-bū-rō'),
a culture medium for fungi containing neopeptone or polypeptone agar and glucose, with final pH of 5.6; it is the standard, most universally used medium in mycology and is the international reference. Modified Sabouraud agar (Emmons modification) with neutral pH and less glucose is better for pigment development in the colonies.

Using a micropipette l00 uL, test samples solution and ketoconazole solution (standard) was shifted into various non-solidified tubes of Sabouraud agar media.
We made subcultures on sheep blood, chocolate, and Sabouraud agar and performed Kinyoun and Ziehl-Neelsen stains, in which we observed partially acidic alcohol-resistant coccobacilli (Appendix Figure, panels B,C).
The purpose of this article is to provide an insight into the share of dermatophytes, yeasts and non-der-matophyte molds as potential pathogens in OM, grown on Sabouraud agar without cycloheximide, as well as the prevalence of positive and negative results of DME, and grown isolates, according to patient sex and age.
Naturally growing fungal samples from different sources such as bread, rice and maize were collected from various locations around the University of Veterinary and Animal Sciences, Lahore (Pakistan) and subsequently cultured on Sabouraud agar. After inoculation of samples on the agar, petri dishes were kept at a temperature of 28+-2AoC for 10 days in the incubator to allow the fungal spores grow in the form of colonies.
Enumeration of biofilm cells after a swab of the well was performed by drop plate technique plating cell suspensions of Escherichia coli, Salmonella Typhimurium, and Candida albicans on Eosin Methylene Blue agar (HiMedia, Mumbai, India), Hecktoen Enteric agar (Himedia Mumbai, India), and Sabouraud agar (Oxoid, Basingstoke, United Kingdom), respectively.
Fusarium solani (4014) was cultured in Sabouraud agar and preserved in the Laboratorio de Fisiologia e Bioquimica de Microrganismos (LFBM), Universidade Estadual do Norte Fluminense Darcy Ribeiro (UENF), Campos dos Goytacazes, RJ, Brazil.

Plate media (tryptic soy agar [TSA], blood agar, Sabouraud agar, and MacConkey agar) were inoculated by rolling the swabs over approximately 20% of the medium surface--the "initial inoculum area." Sterile, disposable plastic loops were used to streak in parallel lines from that initial inoculum area into three other quadrants of the medium surface.
The same strains tested in each Petri dish were seeded in the same order in a straight line on a witness sabouraud agar without EO and were incubated in the same conditions (control Petri dish).
The media used in this experiment were Sabouraud Agar, Chitin Agar, and Tryptic Soy Agar to determine the population of fungi, actinomycetes and bacteria, respectively.
