Schaedler Agar is suitable for standard procedures used in cultivating anaerobicbacteria.
Schaedler Agar is prepared according to the formulation described by Schaedler, Dubos, and Costello, andmodified by Mata, Carrillo, and Villatoro. Modifications include reduced dextrose to avoid interference withhemolytic reactions, reduced yeast extract to avoid darkening of the medium, and adjusted sodium chloride and nitrogen concentrations.
