InTray® DM - Prepared Plated Culture Media for Dermatophytes

InTray DM prepared plated culture media serves as a microbiology sample collection, transport, culture device. The enriched dermatophyte medium detects dermatophyte fungi from clinical specimens with mixed microbiota. Prepared culture media for distinctive colony growth, producing typical identifying characteristics both macro and microscopically. The culture media is selective for positive growth of strains of dermatophytes; while inhibiting most gram-positive and gram negative bacteria, yeast and saprophytic fungi. InTray DM’s selective media allows for chromogenic detection and observation in one device.
