Fungisel Agar is used for the selective isolation of pathogenic fungi from clinical materials.
Product Summary and Explanation
Fungisel Agar contains Cycloheximide and Chloramphenicol. These antibiotics selectively inhibit saprophytic fungi and bacteria while allowing pathogenic fungi to grow. Adding antimicrobial agents to media for the isolation of pathogenic fungi is well documented.
Selective fungal media are recommended for the isolation of dermatophytes, because these pathogens are not sensitive to Cycloheximide or Chloramphenicol.
