Product Summary and Explanation
Sabouraud Dextrose Agar (SDA) is a modification of Dextrose Agar described by Sabouraud. SDA is used for cultivating pathogenic and commensal fungi and yeasts. The high dextrose concentration and acidic pH of the formula permits selectivity of fungi. The addition of Lecithin and Tween 80 to Sabouraud Dextrose Agar is used to neutralize antiseptics and disinfectants for environmental monitoring and other applications. Complete neutralization of disinfectants is important. Disinfectant carryover can cause false no-growth test results.
